Events, Parties and Jazz at the station

Private Functions

Resto Gare may be the ideal venue for your special private function, group meeting, alumnae reunion, Christmas party, cocktail reception or social get-together.

Planning small intimate weddings is one of our specialties.

Various parts of the restaurant can be reserved for parties. Our train holds 45, our dining room 90 and our patio 49, but parties with special menus can be arranged for smaller groups. A custom menu for your group can be printed for your guests with a choice of appetizers, salad course, entrees and desserts as agreed to before the event. We would be happy to assist in selecting the wines for dinner.

For large events the entire restaurant is available to be reserved. Go to the contact page to contact us.

Jazz at the Station (every Wednesday)


September 6 – Karly Epp/Karl Kohut
September 13 – Brian Chipney 
September 20 – The Burton Trio
September 27 – Nadia Douglas

And here we are.

September, when the days dwindle down. School is back in session, holidays are done. Cooler temperatures are on the horizon. This will be the final month of Resto Gare’s “Jazz at the Station” for 2023. To complete our season we have four more Wednesdays featuring top-notch jazz talent, with the accent on vocalists!

Karly Epp is a U of M alumnus [or more properly “alumna”, though it isn’t a word you hear very often!] and has spent time working and studying in New York City. She’s a very fine singer! You can say exactly the same [minus the singer part!] about Carly’s bandmate Karl Kohut! Karl enjoyed four years in New York, including time spent studying at Juilliard and performing with the likes of Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. They’re pooled their talents to provide you with a brilliant evening of jazz on September 6th!

On the 13th our house band is back in action one more time. The Brian Chipney trio will be presenting mainstream jazz at its finest, featuring Richard Boughton on piano, Steve Hamilton on bass and Chipney himself on soprano saxophone. You won’t need to be a Juilliard graduate to enjoy the swinging jazz of this fine little band!

The Burton Trio graces our stage on the 20th. Adelle Burton is an under-rated vocalist, someone who likes to find her way to the heart of a song and get at the real meaning of the lyrics. Rob is a guitarist, expert in both solo and accompaniment. This husband and wife duo provides a relaxing evening of fine jazz.

Our final evening of the season features one of our favorite vocalists, Nadia Douglas, on September 27th. Nadia’s sultry song stylings will mark a grand finale for 2023 at Resto Gare! Pianist Rick Boughton will be there to provide his usual outstanding support to Nadia.

And there you have it ……. the final month of jazz at Resto Gare for this season!

Shows take place from 6:30 to 8:30 each Wednesday. We’ll be out on the patio whenever the weather allows. When it doesn’t we move inside to the inviting confines of our dining room. Reservations are suggested though not strictly required. Call us at 204-237-7072 to reserve your table. Always plenty of free parking alongside our historic train car. Our series is winding down for the season, but there’s still lots of great jazz to come! Join us every Wednesday in September for Resto Gare’s “Jazz at the Station”!!
