Patrick McGovern's Pub & Restaurant opened in 1982 and has been a favorite St. Paul neighborhood pub ever since. If you are interested in hosting a celebration in one of our private party spaces, please complete the Party Inquiry Form on our website and/or contact one of our party planners, Jeanne or Dianne, for more information at 651-224-5821.
One guest check for food and beverage will be provided. We do not provide separate food and beverage tabs unless special arrangements are discussed and approved. The guest check will automatically include 7.875% food sales tax and 10.375% liquor sales tax. We will be happy to calculate 18% gratuity for your convenience and additional gratuity is always appreciated.
There is a $200 room fee to rent a single room and a $400 fee to rent our second level privately (groups of 100-130) which must be paid in advance before the booking is confirmed. We will be happy to hold the space for three days to allow time for payment of the room fee. You can either mail a check payable to Patrick McGovern's or you can transact the fee on your credit card in person Monday through Friday between the hours of 11 am and 5 pm. The room fee may be refunded if we are notified of a cancellation at least 30 days prior to the date of the function. Food and beverages minimums vary based on the day of the week and the season.
All set-up/decorations must be approved in advance and access to the booked space is allowed no sooner than one-half hour prior to the event to facilitate this. We don't allow candles, confetti, sequins or items to be hung on our walls. Balloons must be weighted down and removed at the end of the function. McGovern's does not accept deliveries of balloons, flowers or any decorations. Host must be present for all deliveries one-half hour prior to the event and/or bring items with you. Guests are not allowed to rearrange the tables in the rented spaces. Any variations of table arrangements must be approved, in advance, and detailed instructions will be included on the party worksheet for McGovern's staff.
Cakes or other desserts may be brought in with prior approval. Host must provide all decorative plates, napkins & flatware for self-serving. If McGovern's provides the set-ups, a $25.00 fee will be charged. McGovern's does not accept delivery of any cakes or desserts. Host may arrange to have the items brought in one-half hour prior to the event and must be present to accept delivery.
The person booking the reservation will be the primary contact person throughout the planning process unless we are informed otherwise. We do not ask for credit card information in advance but do require the name of the person who will be responsible for payment of any hosted portion of the tab. Multiple credit card payments must be approved in advance. The person providing the credit card must present the credit card at the start of the event to the bartender and must be present to sign the credit card voucher at the end of the function unless a designee is assigned. Any exceptions to this must be approved by McGovern's in advance. We require full payment at the end of the function and do not offer billing services. We do not accept checks but welcome cash, American Express, VISA, MasterCard and Discover.
Private party requests, reservations and details are communicated via email or telephone. Due to the large number of private party requests and reservations we are unable to personally meet with all hosts. Private rooms can be viewed on the website under "Room Gallery". Once a party is booked, a worksheet is prepared detailing food, beverage and other specifics. This worksheet will be emailed for host approval and used by our staff on the day of the event. We ask that details be finalized 5 - 7 days prior to the scheduled event.
Please note that while we try to honor specific room requests, we reserve the right to change the booking to a different space based on events and other circumstances out of our control.
Persons booking the reservation are responsible for any damages that may occur to the property of McGovern's. In the event that damages do occur, a credit card will be held until payment of damaged property is recovered and legal action may be taken.
