Hotel Irvine Winter Dining Events

Hotel Irvine Winter Dining Events

Although the weather outside is chilly, Hotel Irvine offers a warm welcome to travelers and guests who are making it the area’s popular vibrant lifestyle hotel. Guests love gathering at Red Bar and Lounge for Happy Hour – and for prime sporting events viewing – and locals appreciate Marketplace for its easy and affordable “grab-and-go” food. EATS Kitchen & Bar offers contemporary twists on comfort food with a patio and cozy fire for lounging on crisp SoCal winter nights.

Here’s what’s new and happening at these favorite Hotel Irvine social gathering spots this coming season:

Good EATS Weekend Brunch
Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
EATS Sunday Brunch is packed with so much flavor, another brunch day had to be added. The gastropub now serves brunch on both Saturday and Sunday mornings, complete with classic breakfast favorites and contemporary twists. Guests can add even more flavor to their weekend with $8 bottomless mimosas or EATS $14 build-your-own bloody mary bar.

A Taste of Marketplace
Fridays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Super Bowl All-You-Can-Eat Tailgate Party
