Are you ready to party?

With three floors, four bars with 32 beers on tap, six bathrooms, and a kitchen, the Big Hunt is ready to party! We have multiple private spaces available for events. We can accommodate birthdays, fundraisers, company happy hours, wedding after parties, holiday parties, and everything in between. Interested? Email us at bighuntparties@gmail.com. Please include the date and time of your party, number of guests, and your contact information. Ask about the Jungle Room for larger events or The Voodoo Lounge for smaller events.

Do you get jokes?

Underground Comedy produces stand-up comedy shows in The Devil’s Kitchen basement bar five nights a week. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday shows are usually free, but check ahead of time. Please note that The Big Hunt does NOT sell tickets to the shows; we are just the venue and have no involvement in ticket price or distribution. To buy tickets to a show please visit the Underground Comedy website.


The Big Hunt is licensed as a TAVERN. Therefore to be in the building you must have a valid, government issued ID and you must be at least 21 years old. This applies to any parties we host and all of the stand-up shows produced by Underground Comedy. Even if you aren’t drinking any of our 32 draft beers or delicious classic cocktails, this applies to you. It’s the law.

Please also note that a 20% gratuity will be added to a check for a party of five or more. This is our policy. You probably don’t like doing the math at the end of the night anyway.
