Performances and Parties!

We’ve been busy at Tonic this summer! Last Friday’s patio party was a huge success. The Brixton St. Duo turned into a TRIO, tons of people came out, and to be the heat we served water ice spiked with vodka and rum! To keep the momentum going this weekend, we have invited musicians Tony Capella and Kurt Houff of Montana Wildaxe and Greg Hudson to play in the lounge this Friday night from 7-11pm. Come early to take advantage of our Happy Hour specials from 4-7 pm or the Turf and Free Surf dinner special that runs all evening in our dining room.

Our private dining room, along with the lounge and new patio space, has been in high demand this summer. Several group parties have requested these spaces for after work happy hours, team building, celebratory dinners, etc. We are so grateful to be able to accommodate these groups and offer them various options to fit their needs. Our hospitality team has been busy showing the spaces to guests looking to host bridal showers, reunions, and holiday parties this fall and winter. If you are interested in seeing the space or want more information, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Things are booking fast so avoid the stress and book early! Contact us at (302) 510-8070 or fill out a form on the Group Parties page.

We’ll see you this weekend!
