Swabbies Party Booking Information


Swabbies on The River provides guaranteed seating party bookings for 25 or more guests within the designated Friday-Sunday time frames available.

Party bookings are only available for groups of 25 guests or more. If your party has less than 25 guests we are a first come first serve venue. No reservations needed or taken.

Ending times may vary, due to how much fun your guests will be having! (We must start the parties before the crowds arrive; this is why we only do bookings in these time frames. Must arrive no earlier than set time and depart no later than set time.)
