Group wine & cocktails
We recommend pre-selecting wines for your event which allows the host to enjoy the start of the evening while providing an elevated service experience. Our Wine Director has carefully chosen a select list of versatile wines that appeal to an array of tastes and pair perfectly with our group menus. When you preselect wine, we stock these for your event and your dedicated service team will automatically offer these wines to your guests upon arrival and throughout the dinner service. It is not necessary to preorder a certain number of bottles, you are simply charged by the bottle based on what your party consumes.

If you would like to choose wine from a more extensive selection, please ask your Group Sales Manager and we will connect with our Wine Director to find the perfect wine for your event.
To ensure availability & meet order deadlines, wine selections must be confirmed with your Sales Manager no later than 3 weeks before your event. Please note, restaurants carry a limited quantity of each wine on our menu. Without pre-ordering, we cannot guarantee we will have adequate quantity of certain wines in house.

What is the difference between a private room and a main dining room booking?
A private room booking is when a specific private room in the restaurant is reserved for your groups’ exclusive use. Your guests will have private use of the room for the duration of the service and no other guests will have access to the room. Other areas of the restaurant remain open to the public. A private room booking is always subject to a minimum F&B spend which varies depending on the date and day of the week. A main dining room booking is when tables in the restaurant are reserved for your group dinner but other guests are seated around and beside your group. Please note, main dining room groups are seated at dinner tables upon arrival (there is no space for standing cocktails).
What is a minimum spend?
A minimum spend is the amount that you are required to spend on food and beverage before 5% tax and 20% gratuity are applied. Items such as food, wine, and drinks count towards a minimum spend. If the minimum spend requirement is not met, the difference will appear as a room fee on the final bill.
Elevator - no
Wheelchair ramp - no
Wheelchair compliant bathrooms - no
*Please note, all dining areas are located up a large set of stairs.
To complete a group booking, we require a booking form to be filled out and sent back with a valid credit card.
For events with a minimum spend, a 50% deposit is required at the time of booking. Deposits are refundable up to 60 days prior to the event date.
In the event you do not achieve the minimum, a rental fee in the amount required to achieve the minimum spend will be applied to the host bill.
Both the host bill and individual guest bills count towards a minimum spend. In the case of separate bills, if the minimum spend is not achieved, the host is responsible for paying a rental fee in the amount required to achieve the minimum spend.
Chuck’s requires a final guest count one week prior to the event date. After this time you will be charged the price of the menu for any ‘no shows’. In the event of last - minute cancellation (less than 7 days), you will be charged the price of the menu for the reserved number of guests.
Groups not subject to a minimum spend may cancel with out penalty up to 7 days prior to the event date. After this time, you will be charged the price of the menu for the reserved number of guests.
30-minute grace period for group reservations. After 45-minutes, group is deemed a no-show.
Wines must be finalized three weeks prior to event date. Chuck’s does not allow guests to bring their own wine (no corkage).
The credit card provided on the booking form will be charged for your event unless otherwise specified (in which case a different card is required).
In the case of separate bills, the credit card provided will be charged the price of the menu for any ‘no shows’ or any charges not paid in full.
All events must be paid in full the day of the event, we do not invoice.
A 20% gratuity + 5% gst will be added to the final bill. Rental fees are also subject to 20% gratuity + 5% gst
