Private Events

Bring your party to the Rendezvous.

We’ve been hosting special occasions of all kinds for decades. It’s what we do. From family reunions to business meetings, rehearsal dinners to state dinners, the Rendezvous experience dials every event up a notch. We welcome reservations for parties of 6-250 guests with a variety of unique spaces to fit your event.

Upstairs Party Room

Seats 50-250

The Rendezvous Party Room is a space like no other – soaring tin ceilings, rustic hardwood floors, amazing history, unrivaled jukebox and, most importantly, Rendezvous Barbecue. The space is versatile and can fit any event from rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, corporate events, holiday parties, fundraisers and more. Plus, where else could you tell your guests Princes and Presidents have dined, the Rolling Stones have played a set, sports superstars have celebrated and local Memphians have congregated? Let us take care of your event, make it easy, show you true hospitality, play a little Memphis music, and feed you authentic Memphis barbecue.

Fred's Room

Seats 40

Fred’s Room provides a great semi-private area for any mid-size get together. This cozy, eclectic room lets you feel the excitement and energy of the Rendezvous atmosphere.

Percy's Room

Seats 62

Probably the most famous room in the restaurant as it was home to one of The Rendezvous’ most popular servers – Percy Norris. For over 48 years, Percy served locals, tourists, celebrities, and the like in this back room. Percy’s Room is downstairs and to the far back on the new side of the restaurant. For larger parties, we can incorporate Stinson’s room for an additional 20 seats.

“Great atmosphere and serious barbecue.” 

– Kim D.

“Never would have thought the best ribs were hidden in an alleyway”


“Nothing can quite compare to the Rendezvous’s iconic setting, from the stylish red and green awning outside to the red-checked tablecloths and photograph-lined walls of the basement dining room.”

-Southern Living

“These ribs are a rack of history, but the cheese and sausage plate, the brisket, and the pork shoulder sandwich are also worth your time.”


“Some of the greatest bbq made in the history of mankind”

-Sofia D.
