Private Events

Make your event a truly unique experience with a piece of Milwaukee history in our beautifully renovated Cream City brick firehouse.

We are thrilled that you are interested in hosting an event with Engine Company No. 3 & La Merenda and we would love to be a part of your special occasion!

  • wedding ceremonies & receptions

  • rehearsal dinners

  • holiday parties

  • business meetings

  • birthday parties

  • and so much more!

Serving La Merenda’s seasonal, farm-to-table menu, we are known best for our family style tapas dinners and cocktail style parties. We also offer daytime family style brunches at both locations.

Engine Company No. 3 closes to the public at 2pm each day, so all private evening events are able to utilize the entire building. There are two floors of dining options, plus a brand new patio that may be used as additional space for cocktails and appetizers (weather permitting). The first floor has a full bar and seating for up to 60 guests, while the second floor has a full bar and seating for up to 90 guests - for a total capacity of 150 people. Please note: our second floor is only accessible via stairs.

Additional amenities include wifi, HDMI projector & screen, and wireless microphone.
