For films, brands and corporate groups seeking a more exclusive and private Sundance venue in Park City, Utah, Park City Culinary Institute is pleased to offer a new secluded, rustic and refined space in Deer Valley’s Silver Lake Area. Located at the ski-in, ski-out Deer Valley Club, Park City Culinary Institute hosts many high-end corporate events throughout the year, including during the Sundance Film Festival, which takes place January 21-31, 2016.

Park City Culinary Institute’s chefs each have more than 20 years of experience and are some of the most celebrated in Utah with their own nationally renowned restaurants. In addition to being featured on national TV, they have contributed to cookbooks, consulted worldwide for companies such as Ritz Carlton, and have collaborated with the James Beard Foundation. An Executive Chef is selected and dedicated to each private event based on the type of desired cuisine. He or she works with event coordinators to develop a perfect and unique menu to suite every taste and budget. Cuisine options are endless, including Park City’s innovative Western Mountain Cuisine, High Alpine, and Ranch and River inspired menus. The Institute’s master mixologists and sommeliers are on hand to design a cocktail menu and wine list that complements the style of cuisine and type of event.

“We have developed a reputation for creating flawless, personalized cocktail parties and dinners for discerning clients interested in memorable, local cuisine that elevates the standard party fare,” says Laurie Moldawer, Director of the Park City Culinary Institute. “In addition to enjoying the exclusive Deer Valley Club, and mingling with world-class chefs, guests can enjoy the greater privacy and five-star convenience that other venues can’t provide.”

The Deer Valley Club can accommodate up to 240 guests (indoors and heated patio tent, combined). Only one party is hosted per night, so those planning events have exclusive use of the facility. Guests may enjoy their dinner, luncheon or cocktail party without being rushed to breakdown or depart the beautiful space. The venue may also be used for daytime functions, such as gifting suites, hospitality lounges and brunches. Valet parking is available, and the Deer Valley Club is located on Park City Transit’s free bus route.
