Public Happenings

The Oxbow Hotel and The Lakely play host to weekly indoor events in the bar and the gallery lounge, as well as periodic outdoor events in our courtyard and patio.

Our stage inside the Lakely regularly hosts some of the finest jazz musicians in the region, as well as special guest DJ appearances spinning vinyl in the late evening hours. Other live music and special ticketed events also occur often. The stage features a signature look designed by Eaux Claires Festival creative director Michael Brown, as well as optimal viewing angles from throughout the establishment.

Our Gallery Lounge can play host to a number of different community events including small concerts, film screenings, book readings, talks, parties, and more. Our courtyard and patio – featuring outdoor fire pits, couches, tables, and more – make for a great outdoor spot for larger seasonal events as well.

Private Parties & Events

Morning, noon, or night, the Oxbow is a dynamic choice for a variety of exclusive parties, events, and corporate functions. We feature highly unique and comfortable indoor spaces, as well as flexible urban outdoor spaces – environments that exude the kind of northern vibe you can’t find anywhere else in the region. With some of the town’s best food and drink offerings, we can host nightlife-driven revelries, site-wide celebrations, private corporate lunches, or anything you may have in mind.

We have full audio/visual capabilities, stages and specialty lighting, and quality sound. A range of set ups are possible accommodating smaller groups of fifteen up to larger events in the hundreds. And if your group wants to also spend the night, our 30 rooms (including 12 two-room suites) can comfortably sleep as many as 72 people.
