Events at ROÌA

Housed within the historic Taft Hotel, ROÌA is an unforgettable setting for your events. Originally built in 1912, this New Haven architectural gem has hosted over 100 years of celebrations and functions. (If the walls could speak, what tales they could tell!)

ROÌA’s elegance, uncomplicated grace, and warm service in addition to our celebrated seasonal French and Italian cuisine make ROÌA the perfect venue for your wedding reception, rehearsal dinner, Bar Mitzvah or private event.

Accustomed to hosting both private and corporate gatherings, ROÌA is located in the heart of downtown New Haven just steps from the long-established Yale campus, adjacent the Shubert Theater.


At ROÌA, we celebrate style. Our events team is dedicated to turning your dream wedding into a reality.

Executive Chef Avi Szapiro works closely with each event host, coordinating with local farmers and fishermen to craft a custom menu for an unforgettable culinary experience.

With our romantic setting, fine service and custom menus, let us help you create timeless wedding memories you’ll treasure forever.
