Private Events & Weddings

The Idle Hour is a South Lake Tahoe event venue spanning two interior levels with a spacious, panoramic deck that sits directly above the sparkling blue water of Lake Tahoe

Ideal for:

weddings, bridal showers, corporate parties,

family reunions and holiday celebrations


With years of Lake Tahoe event planning The interior spaces have been carefully designed with an eye for playing off the natural emeralds, blues and purples of surrounding Lake Tahoe, also known as Big Blue. Idle Hour designers used re-purposed furnishings and fixtures throughout, rather than purchasing brand-new decor. This adds to a warm, inviting and personal feel, right down to the baby grand piano! The works of local artists and craftspeople adorn the walls.
