Once a big block party event space, the restaurant is fully adaptable for both large celebrations and small intimate gatherings.

    incredible, unique venue

    My wedding on 11/23/19 was seriously the most beautiful, special day I could have ever imagined. From start to finish, Chandler was wonderful to work with- super easy and clear planning process! My husband and I were searching for a unique venue (we loathe banquet halls) and after seeing the event space at Porta, we immediately knew that was it- it was the only venue we looked at! The food was amazing, and there was a ton of it. (Definitely recommend adding on the seafood tower!) My guests raved and raved about our day- everyone loved how refreshingly different our wedding was. I wish I could go back in time and relive it!

    Awesome experience!

    Our day at Porta in Asbury Park was perfect! Chandler was so easy to work with, and Heather did a fantastic job coordinating the food! I would highly recommend this venue to any couple looking to have a non-traditional wedding, or something slightly different from the norm. The room really transforms into a reception room nicely! Oh and the food is fantastic, no one goes home hungry!
