Just recently we were thrilled to celebrate our 50th Anniversary with over five-hundred family, friends and customers - what an exciting benchmark for our family! Five decades ago, our dad Joe began by partnering with four friends and overseeing the groundbreaking what was once the Hotel Scandia in 1962. What first was expected to become a bowling alley has turned into a popular event destination in Garwood, NJ. Over the years, countless members of the Scalzadonna family have made The Westwood, their home away from home, from our children to our grandmother Lena, they have all taken an active role in making The Westwood what it is today. It’s the event you’ve waited a lifetime for.
Whether an intimate brunch or an evening bash for hundreds, count on The Westwood to translate your wedding vision into glorious reality. Choose from dazzling buffet options, popular station-style service, even an event that includes your own signature cocktail! Making your Quinceañera or Sweet 16 event look effortless takes an enormous amount of behind-the-scenes effort — choosing the court and the gowns, planning the choreography, selecting the perfect menu to match your theme, and so much more. The dancing! The singing!
The food, the fun — has it all and more when you host an unforgettable bar or bat mitzvah at The Westwood. Kids and adults alike enjoy their own delicious menus and individual cocktail hours, and then come together for the main event. The Westwood staff eats, sleeps and dreams about events — the food, the drink, the logistics, all the details that can turn an important meeting or business event from ho-hum to home run. Because events are our business, we’re uniquely qualified to ensure yours goes off without a hitch.
