Party Spots

It’s the 5th Anniversary of Westport Lifestyle Magazine, so let’s party! We asked, Westport’s go-to resource, to pick some of the best venues, locations, and ideas for the perfect celebration!

Compo Beach

Every town has its own special 4th of July celebration; we bring ours to the beach. Bring your folding chairs and beverages and enjoy our public grilling area or covered pavilion, then watch the display over the Long Island Sound.


Autostrada houses a fascinating car collection. With a bar and lounge that fits 120, this space is perfect for those who appreciate the lines and mechanical beauty of rare cars and motorcycles.

Surrounded by art, this sophisticated space is perfect for cocktail parties and engagement parties alike. At BarMoCA you can enjoy excellent drinks while enjoying the exhibits.


With a special dining room separate from the main restaurant and covered outdoor space, you can kick off a day of celebration with brunch, or plan a special dinner for family, friends, or colleagues.

Westport Country Playhouse

Fitted with velvet curtains and seats, the storied Playhouse is where you can enjoy a show or dive into culture and art. The adjoining Lucille Lortel White Barn and Smilow Lounges are ideal for receptions and dinners in an open environment.

Rive Bistro

With a wall of windows facing the water, you can’t ask for a better view! Rive Bistro’s riverfront location makes an amazing backdrop for any celebration. With two private dining rooms, it’s perfect for intimate dining or big group gatherings.

The Westport Library

Situated in downtown Westport overlooking the scenic Saugatuck River, go big with the Library! Give them a call to reserve a spot for your group!

The Inn at Longshore

With a large event space and the motto “Every Day is a Celebration,” the Inn is perfect for every type of party. For out-of-towners, they also provide comfortable homestyle accommodations for the night.

Wakeman Town Farm

With a full amenity kitchen and a dining space for up to 30, you can enjoy locally grown organic food right where it’s grown. With every reservation, you’ll be supporting the farm’s community-driven sustainability mission.

Sherwood Island State Park

Enjoy an immersive outdoor space for your gathering in Connecticut’s oldest state park. Have lunch in the park’s scenic picnic groves, find shade in the pavilion, try saltwater fishing, swim in the Long Island Sound, or just enjoy the natural beauty of its sprawling 235-acres.

Party Harty

You can’t have a party without accessories and decorations! Called the go-to party place in Westport for 33 years, it has all the accouterments to spice up and formalize a celebration or special event, no matter which venue you end up choosing.
