Gown & Gavel

About this venue

Situated in historic Hess Village, the Gown & Gavel is the ideal summer patio for outdoor dining and ice-cold drinks. Enjoy selections from our consistently delicious menu from 11am till close all year ’round. The complete renovation of two adjoining Victorian buildings in Hamilton’s Hess Village entertainment district creates an upscale, modern entertainment complex. Our casual yet upscale environment is perfect for business meetings, private parties and seasonal celebrations.

“The Gown” – where strangers become friends.
