Downtown Carmel is home to an iconic multi-story venue perfect for gatherings big and small. From an intimate black-tie birthday dinner with your closest friends to a soirée for the ages surrounded by picture windows, Anthony’s Chophouse offers modern elegance for the refined palette in a welcoming setting. Directly above Anthony’s Chophouse is 3UP Rooftop Lounge, a cocktail bar with panoramic views, delicious drinks, shareable snacks, and excellent ambiance. Both venues are ideal for hosting celebratory events.

Anthony’s Chophouse has two private dining rooms on their second floor. The first is the Glass Chimney, a bar space with a unique tie to local history. With a gorgeous mahogany bar as a centerpiece to the room and glass walls surrounding on all sides, this unique space can accommodate up to 30 seated guests.

“There’s a beautiful mahogany bar that comes from the old Glass Chimney restaurant and holds many memories for guests while they create new memories with us,” says Sonya Peters, Event Coordinator, LRG Restaurants. “The glass walls give an open feeling while still having an intimate private space.”

Their second space, dubbed the Board Room can accommodate up to 16 guests at one long rectangular table. On one side of the room, a glass wine wall displaying a curated selection of wines from their award-winning wine list. From another angle, a glass window overlooks the first-floor bar. Both rooms are equipped with a flat screen TV with wifi and AirTame capabilities, which make business meetings and photo slideshows a breeze.

In the 3UP Rooftop Lounge, guests can order from a full food menu with many elevated favorites, including Filet Sliders, Wagyu Tacos, Brussels Sprout Egg Roll, and Garden Veggie Pizza. While 3UP operates on a walk-in basis, they do offer two reservable spaces for larger parties on their outdoor covered patio. Their partially covered outdoor patio is equipped with ceiling heaters and fire pits, making it cozy and welcoming year-round. The Elevated Patio can hold an event for up to 35 guests.

“With a gorgeous succulent wall [in growing season], this is our most highly sought after area,” says Peters. “Great for photo ops!”

The 3UP Couches are reservable for parties of up to 15 guests. Because the patio is fully covered, this space is ideal even on the sunniest days of summer.

“Our venue is gorgeous and second to none, but our service and kitchen team are truly our standouts,” says Peters. “We strive for excellence with every guest and pride ourselves on being a part of the guests’ memories that they will hold for years to come.”

On Sundays and Tuesdays 3UP is closed for general business but offers full buyouts of the entire 3UP Rooftop Lounge, which includes the full indoor space and gorgeous patio, accommodating up to 150 guests.
