A rarity in restaurants, Catalyst’s 1600 square feet of private event space offers the flexibility and service of a luxury hotel with the personable character and cuisine of a top restaurant.
Catalyst’s team of managers, event planners and chefs are trained to execute to perfection. Private Event Sales Manager Maggie Couture can organize special menus with Chef Kovel, order floral décor and even replace Catalyst’s dining room furniture with a modern lounge – complete with sofas, cocktail tables and sheer drapes hung from the ceiling to create separate spaces.
Finding a city wedding location is no easy task, but Catalyst removes many of the constraints of a restaurant wedding venue by bringing hotel event space and service to an intimate, personal restaurant setting. Catalyst’s team of event managers developed their talents planning and executing weddings at five-star hotels, experience they now bring to weddings at Catalyst.
Saturday wedding for 200 with all events at one venue? Not a problem. Catalyst can host the ceremony inside its private rooms, on the heated patio or even on the grassy lawn of Technology Square. Guests can then move to cocktails around the fire, on the patio or around the bar. Dinner, followed by dancing and live music can take place in the restaurant itself or in 1600 square feet of private event space.
Have a smaller affair in mind? Catalyst can arrange for ceremony, cocktails, dinner and dancing in its private event space, away from the bustle of a weekend dinner crowd.

Great food and beautiful space with helpful staff for our 120 person wedding
Catalyst was the perfect venue for our July wedding for 120 guests. After a ceremony at MIT we used the restaurant for the reception, including cocktail hour, lunch, and dancing. Robyn and her team did a fantastic job from start to finish and the modern look of the space was exactly what we were looking for. Above all, the advantage of a restaurant venue like Catalyst was clear in the quality of the food; we lost count of the number of compliments we got, and the kitchen was easily able to accommodate dietary restrictions. We had a live band play which Robyn helped coordinate on the day of; this went off without a hitch. Finally, we especially appreciated the layout of the space and how it allowed for a lunch where people's conversations would not be drowned out by music from the band (though if you wanted to set it up a different way that would probably be possible too).Sent on 09/14/2019

Exceeded expectations; such a great wedding experience!
Catalyst Restaurant did an amazing job with our 130 person wedding (ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing were all held at Catalyst). We wanted an urban venue that would be easy and straightforward to plan at. Once we met Robyn, the events manager, and saw the beautiful space with it's large windows and convenient location, we were sold. Robyn and her team made things as stress free as possible (from the tasting to scheduling and the day of execution). The space is so beautiful that we only needed to bring in a few decorations and Robyn's team set them up in a pretty way that went well with the existing restaurant decor. All we had to do on the wedding day was show up and then the Catalyst events team took care of everything else, telling us where to go, managing the timeline, and checking in with us at each step so that we were just able to completely enjoy ourselves and be in the moment without worrying. The space is large and it's great because you move throughout the venue throughout the different parts of the evening. Having the wedding at a restaurant also meant that there was already a fully stocked bar and kitchen along with restaurant staff who work at weddings on a regular basis, making everything a well oiled machine. Guests raved about the food and the space and it was overall an amazing time!!Sent on 07/12/2019

Set the bar!
My husband and I cannot count how many times people have said “Best. Wedding. Ever.” If you want a venue that has great food, a great location and a modern vibe, this is it. Robyn and her team were awesome. She made sure what we got a break right after our ceremony so that we could have a breather. She also made sure that we always had a drink in our hand ;). We didn’t have to worry about anything. We had the whole restaurant to ourselves- the Catalyst team flipped the room after our ceremony to get ready for dinner. Then we had dancing and dessert in the main dining area. Everything was flawless. The food was amazing-everyone could not stop raving about it. We can’t thank Robyn and her team enough – 11/10/2018 was something really special.Sent on 07/21/2019
