Welcome Groups

8 Chains North can accommodate small and large groups. We offer several group seating and tasting options, including guided seated wine tastings or flights, and table rentals for smaller groups. We require advanced notice and reservations for 9 or more people. Unscheduled groups may be turned away.

We also offer private space for your special event—rehearsal dinner, birthday or anniversary party, shower, reunion, holiday party, corporate lunch/picnic/team-building event, or fundraiser. All parties of 25+ guests who are not doing a seated wine tasting require a private event rental. We can accommodate up to 110 guests.

See which option is right for your group, then fill out the Group Reservation Form or call 571.439.2255. Please review our policies so that your group has a wonderful experience.
