PRIVATE DINNERS

TROPICAL BEACHFRONT FINE DINING

MAGICAL MOMENTS UNDER THE PALMS

Lola’s secluded beach front location allows a unique blend of privacy and freedom for our guests. The casual, tropical setting of custom wood chairs and tables set with candles and orchids surrounded by the glow of torches, combined with towering palm trees and a white sand beach stretching out to the ocean create the perfect atmosphere for a grand celebration, an informal cocktail party or an intimate dinner. 

 

We are delighted you are exploring planning your special event with us and look forward to helping you create a memorable evening for you and your guests. For rehearsal dinners, weddings, corporate events and any special occasion or celebration we can organize shuttle service, book entertainment as an alternative to our in-house music, arrange for flowers, pour champagne, pass appetizers, hire officiates, rent and set up tents and accommodate any other special requests you might require. We personally handle all the details while our staff provides the attentive service that allows you to relax and enjoy the party. 

 

Pura Vida!
