We have been here numerous times and love to listen to WMU jazz on stage. I usually order the Mac N Cheese and/or barbeque dishes. Love them both. Good selection of beers, great ambiance, and cool area of town to eat out.

Not sure if the Union has a private room. The Wine Loft in Kalamazoo might, and Zazios has a private section that would probably work well.
