Adorned tables awaiting the arrival of guests in the Chateau's South Barrel Room.
Hospitality has been one of Inglenook's hallmarks since its inception in 1879. Captain Niebaum believed that it is the host's responsibility to guarantee the happiness of guests, a sentiment that continues to encompass the Estate's Event philosophy.
Intricately cut into a landscape design, a pair of metal-wrought, black gates provide access between the Refectory and the Infinity Caves. Curved and vertical details of the opened gates can be seen here in the foreground, creating a frame for the vibrant backdrop of seated dinner.
Joyful bursts of colors and reflections surround the Courtyard's Fountain, set within a park-like expanse of pathways and filled with London Plane trees, the tops of which serve as a natural canopy.

More than just pairing fine wine with the menus prepared by our in-house Estate Chef, Inglenook places a premium on having all aspects of the event––from decor to entertainment––be parts of a whole experience that contribute to an occasion not soon to be forgotten.
Typically arranged with dining tables or with conference style seating, the South Barrel Room is here completely reimagined by the sleek lines of an Art Deco-inspired lounge, suitable for any number of affairs where greater ease of movement is desired for guests.
A sense of warmth has been conjured in the Chateau's Refectory, a stately space, the stone walls of which are accented by the brilliant lighting of three hand-cut crystal chandeliers with hundreds of sparkling pendants and strands. Reminiscent of the dining halls of monasteries, the Refectory was finished on the occasion of Francis Coppola's 80th birthday, its christening celebration.
The delicacy of blue and white is fitting for the Terrace, a more secluded spot just outside the doors of the Chateau's South Barrel Room. The Terrace has often been used as a setting for smaller out-of-doors "living room" areas, strewn with carpets and arranged into random furniture groupings that encourage conversational closeness.
Florals, in delicate shades of pink and green, sit amidst an arrangement of glittering crystal, an image that speaks a thousand words in describing the quality of entertainment that guests can expect with Inglenook serving as their host.

The Event team's entertainment style reflects that of the Coppola family: traditional, yet relaxed with a worldly rhythm, and sometimes unpredictable, but always sincere.
