Private Events


A gathering place in the heart of downtown Charlottesville, Red Pump is the perfect warm and welcoming atmosphere to host your next event. The soft glow from the window draws you in from the buzzing nightlife of the mall and nestles you into our Tuscan-inspired dining room with just the right size space for celebrations, rehearsal dinners, and corporate receptions.


2023 Red Pump Kitchen – Inquire Here


Interested in a 2024 event? Red Pump Kitchen will be coming to a close and no longer accepting event bookings come this December. We’re pleased to continue hosting you and your guests in 2024 at Pippin Hill. Please inquire at our sister property Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyard.


Rehearsal Dinners

As the sister property to our wedding venue at Pippin Hill, we know how exceptional and seamless a rehearsal dinner should be! The kickoff to a wedding celebration starts the night before – set the tone for such a special occasion with elevated and high-touch service, curated culinary delights and an unforgettable evening tucked away downtown in your own private corner of our special city.  


Welcome Parties

Welcome your guests with a truly Charlottesvillian experience – a party on the downtown mall!  Where historic meets hip and culinary ‘yum’ is partnered with craft cocktail ‘wow’, it doesn’t get any more authentic than gathering amongst the locals and immersing your celebration with the buzz and bustle of our charming little-big city. 

Corporate Entertaining

The joy of gathering isn’t just for social celebrations, let us pull you away from the board room or meeting space and show your team a special evening around our table. Whether your presenting, speaking or meeting to start, or just breaking bread together, we have everything you need in the perfect, central location. 

Entertaining Made Easy

We love being smack in the midst of Charlottesville’s energetic pedestrian mall, where history and smart urban design create an ideal backdrop for our foodie-forward fare. From large private dinners to welcome parties and rehearsal dinners, our versatile events options are perfect for your social or business entertaining needs.
