Plan your next celebration with The Catered Affair at Boston Athenæum!

After massive renovations on Boston’s historic Beacon Hill… in Fall 2022 The Catered Affair will be the owner and operator of catering, restaurant, and private events held at one of the most distinguished independent libraries and cultural institutions in the United States.

Surround your guests with over half a million books, two centuries worth of culture and lush decor. The Athenæum’s unique atmosphere makes a splendid setting for corporate presentations, private dinners, receptions, and the like.

An expansive renovation will begin in April, creating new event space in The Leventhal Room, along with reception and dinner spaces in the Henry Long room and G. d’Andelot Belin Bow Room.
