Always A+ – I run a photo scavenger hunt company (FrogQuest.com) and love partnering with them to host my events. Rare to find a place that has the right mix of great beer, great food, great service, great casual atmosphere, and huge TVs/projector for the slideshow (and sports games)!


I call this restaurant a local’s best kept secret because it’s on the second floor of a building in the Gaslamp Quarter, and unless you really knew the area, you’d miss this gem. They have over 20 beers on tap – from craft breweries from around the country, and it’s a go-to spot to watch sporting events. I’ve found myself here during fight nights and football games, and it’s always popping off! The food is not your average bar fare, but well-crafted items from their house made sausages, to their salads and sliders. Everything I’ve had here is legit. The space is also pretty large. I’ve hosted a few large groups here, and the staff is always eager to take care of us. I love Quad!

Birthday party on December 21
Quad Alehouse was the perfect venue to celebrate my husband’s 50th birthday….great beer, full bar and delicious food. Kids were allowed to stay until 10 pm(fully entertained by foosball) and adults could stay into the night. Lauren went above and beyond in making our event special and seamless. All the staff was incredibly conscientious without being uptight. I would recommend Quad Alehouse to anyone looking for a fun, casual but classy, special event.

The event coordinator at Quad Alehouse went above and beyond for our event. She was a pleasure to work with and made sure every details was addressed. The night of our event it was a bit stressful due to the tight timeline, but as to Lauren’s advice and expertise everything went off successful. Quad is a fun atmosphere and I would encourage people to check it out, as well as hold an event at Quad.

We really enjoyed our event at the quad ale house! We had an event for 70+ people and the space was perfect for us. The service was amazing and the food was spectacular. We went with an open bar and appetizer style set up on the third floor and we could not have been happier. The jumbo screen was a huge plus for us. We were able to hook up a laptop and show a video we made without any hassle. The open environment was relaxed yet very tasteful. I would highly recommend the Quad Ale House for any type of event. Class it up or keep it casual. The Quad can do it all! We will use them again very soon.
