Upscale Living Magazine - - Content - | By Alona Ab­bady Martinez

When The Diplo­mat Beach Re­sort un­der­went its $100 mil­lion trans­for­ma­tion in April 2017, ev­ery restau­rant space was de­signed to have the abil­ity to make it pri­vate. There are a to­tal of 9 eat­ing venues at the re­sort, from ca­sual grab-and-go mar­ket to the most ex­quis­ite full-ser­vice meal. Each has a com­pletely dif­fer­ent vibe and cui­sine from the next, but the one thing they all share in com­mon is that their pri­vate din­ing op­tions are next-level. For those with re­fined tastes look­ing to host their hol­i­day part or next din­ner event with class, pri­vacy, and up­scale ser­vice, con­sider these ex­quis­ite pri­vate din­ing spa­ces at the wildly pop­u­lar Hollywood re­sort.


This lux­ury bou­tique steak­house speaks class and ex­cel­lence with its sub­dued ele­gance and posh set­ting. Chef Nico­lay Ad­i­naguev (Steak 954, Verde) is at the helm of this clas­sic chop­house, of­fer­ing house­aged prime beef, a full raw bar (in­clud­ing seafood tow­ers) and Florida grouper and snap­per dishes, plus a care­fully cu­rated wine list and craft cock­tails.

There are two pri­vate din­ing op­tions and both are equally ele­gant, framed with dark woods and col­or­ful azure wall­pa­per to serve as a stately con­trast. The larger room seats up to 32 guests, the smaller 16. Guests can work di­rectly with the restau­rant to cre­ate a unique menu for their event or choose from the al­ready cel­e­brated meals on the menu.


Celebrity chef and restau­ra­teur Michael Schul­son’s mod­ern iza­kaya, aka, Ja­panese gas­tropub, fea­tures sharable small plates and sushi, as well as an ar­ray of spe­cialty cock­tails and sake. It is clear the aes­thetic of the space is as im­por­tant as the food, as Schul­son has man­aged to cre­ate a lux­u­ri­ously chic and con­tem­po­rary de­sign with plenty of in­ti­mate spa­ces for guests to enjoy an au­then­tic Ja­panese meal. Pri­vate din­ing op­tions here in­clude a ter­race that can seat up to 55 and hold 105 for a re­cep­tion or a semi-pri­vate room that seats 24.


Tucked away be­yond award-win­ning Monkitail is a se­cret cock­tail lounge ideal for en­ter­tain­ing. Nokku begs lux­ury, deca­dence, and good times, with a ca­pac­ity of 76 in the lounge area, it also boasts four pri­vate room (seat­ing 8-12), each with full karaoke ca­pa­bil­i­ties.


Celebrity Chef Ge­of­frey Zakar­ian’s Coastal Amer­i­can restau­rant fea­tures mod­ern dishes and a tra­di­tional raw bar in a vi­brant bustling at­mos­phere that of­fers both fresh and sus­tain­able seafood. The restau­rant’s taste­ful retro-chic de­sign harkens to the era of Old Florida, some­thing which blends seam­lessly with Zakar­ian’s sig­na­ture hos­pi­tal­ity. Point Royal of­fers two pri­vate din­ing op­tions. For large par­ties, enjoy the ex­pan­sive din­ing room ter­race which can seat up to 150 guests, with a ca­pac­ity for 250. If you are look­ing for some­thing more in­ti­mate, the cozy pri­vate din­ing room, which seats 14, will make you feel like you are in your own pri­vate sea­side cot­tage.
