Venue Description

About FARMbloomington
Look no further than Bloomington’s most unique and exciting dining destination to celebrate all of your lunches, dinners, parties, celebrations and even business meetings. When you host a special occasion at FARMbloomington, you take advantage of our ability to create a distinctive and memorable event. FARMbloomington’s recipe for success begins with chef-owner Daniel Orr. Chef Daniel returned to his Indiana roots after traveling and working around the world – beginning in New York, then France and finally the Caribbean. He has a strong commitment to utilizing local products and produce in dynamic, innovative, and flavorful dishes. The menu he will create for your event will reflect your personal taste and his outstanding culinary expertise.

In addition to the spaces we have listed on Snappening, we also have several smaller areas you can reserve for small events including:

  • The Silo Table (Seating up to 6 guests) We must be truthful, this is the most popular table in Bloomington! Secluded from the main dining room, but still with a view of the action, the Silo features a prime view of the kitchen. The Silo is a remarkable location for any intimate dining occasion.
  • The Oddfellows Table (Seating up to 10 guests) FARMbloomington once housed the Oddfellows organization, so this table is a fitting historical tribute. Partitioned from the Main Dining Room with antique quilts, this semi-private space with a large antique farm table permits the ambience of the restaurant to quietly drift into the space without disturbing your event. There are even Oddfellow ceremonial masks displayed on the wall. Whether you want a business conversation or a celebration among friends, keep in mind the Oddfellows Table.
  • The Chef’s Apartment (Seating up to 20 guests) There are times when you want a very special venue for a very special occasion. Well, just up the stairs from FARM with its own private entrance and terrace, may we suggest the best one we know, Chef Daniel’s own apartment! With the intimacy that only comes in a home environment, coupled with fabulous food, your event in the Chef’s Apartment will long be remembered.

Yum Yum!

Event Type: Meetings
"I've eaten at FARMbloomington two times now and have been impressed both times. They have an extensive event menu and have a lot of different spaces where you can host events for small groups, or larger groups. Seems like a great spot for a work party or a networking group for sure."
