This non-traditional space offers couples some variety when planning their wedding ceremony, reception, or elopement, or even their rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, or engagement party.
Facilities and Capacity
The Jockey Hollow Bar and Kitchen offers couples four different spaces for guests to explore. The capacity at Jockey Hollow is 500 people, so it is available to host a lavish reception or be modified to work for a more intimate event. There are indoor and outdoor spaces offering floor-to-ceiling windows and modern design, along with a more traditional look with a grand staircase perfect for photos. There is valet parking available, along with wheelchair access.
Couples can work with trusted local vendors to create an event design within the luxury historic mansion. Jockey Hollow will work with you on vendors and event rentals, as necessary.

Professional staff will set up and clean up your event while providing audio equipment, lighting and sound, tables, chairs and chair covers, linens, barware, china, flatware, glassware, and other decor and furniture.
The elevated fine dining experience at the restaurant will transition to your wedding event. Couples can create a custom menu for their big day with a buffet, plated dinner, family style, stations, hors d’oeuvres, a cocktail reception, or dessert items. Jockey Hollow's chefs use fresh, local and high-quality ingredients when creating their dishes. Couples can taste the selections beforehand with a private tasting. For bar options, bartenders will be on-hand offering house or premium beer, liquor and wine; champagne; and specialty and signature drinks. Couples can choose to host an open bar, limited bar, or cash bar for their guests.
Jockey Hollow is located in the heart of Morristown. For out-of-town guests, the Morristown Airport is less than a 10-minute drive away and New York City is only 35 miles away from this historic location.

My husband and I were married on May 27th at JHBK and our guests are still talking about how amazing everything was! We rented the entire restaurant and utilized each floor for a different part of the event. Upstairs for the ceremony, Oyster Bar and Vail Bar for cocktail hour/dinner, and the Rathskeller for dancing. It is hard to say what the best thing about venue is, but for my husband and I, the food and cocktails are near the top! The bartenders were crafting the most amazing drinks finished with smoked rosemary, fresh lavender, etc. And the food is just to die for (if you haven't gone for dinner yet, call and make your reservation now!!) Philip, our event coordinator, was there for us along the way and made sure everything went smoothly throughout the ceremony and reception. He even made sure my husband and I had a special champagne moment after the ceremony. If you are sick of looking at cookie-cutter venues with bad food, call JHBK immediately and see what you are missing! The best thing is, as a restaurant you can go there over and over and over again (which my husband and I certainly did... and continue to do!) (Oh, did I also mention it is handicap accessible, is stunning from the outside, and is in the heart of a cool city with hotels, bars, shops nearby? Okay I think I'm done now :)Sent on 08/02/2018

Aside from that, the service and meal were impeccable. We really feel like Jockey Hollow outshined our lovely wedding meal. Everyone continues to talk about how we picked such a beautiful place for our Rehearsal Dinner. Rocco and the team were professional and attentive, couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
