Just steps away from our hand-crafted cedar top bar, this room is perfect for reception style events. Sofas, low top tables made from reclaimed pecan wood, a giant Elk head, and dim lighting make this room the perfect environment for a mix and mingle event for business or a social event for friends and family. High-top cocktail tables can be added to the space if desired as well. For more information, please send us an inquiry.



Seating up to 36 people maximum, this room is reminiscent of the industrial era with exposed brick walls and concrete flooring. The large windows framed by burlap curtains and our natural wood tables make the room warm & inviting. Our Private Dining Room, or PDR for short, is a perfect space for seated dinner events or business gatherings. For more information, please send us an inquiry.



Located at the back of our restaurant and separated from the rest of the restaurant this room is perfect for an exclusive event for up to 60 guests seated or 80 reception-style. By day this space is a locally loved coffee shop and by night it is easily transformed into a unique and stylish event venue. The room has open rafter ceilings, exposed brick & cement block walls, and unique art pieces. Coffee Cat transformed is a great venue for rehearsal dinners, Holiday parties, and any other event imaginable. For more information, please send us an inquiry.

What We're All About

The Hound is a family owned restaurant and bar featuring over-the-top American classics, top shelf bourbon and 28 craft beers on tap. We feature bacon from heritage breed pork as well as other organic and humanely raised meats. Our atmosphere was designed to be warm and welcoming- think hunting lodge, antler-pronged barn setting with the hustle and bustle of old time Alabama.

A Family Affair

Owners Matthew Poirier and Jana (Caruthers) Poirier moved back to Auburn, AL with the dream of opening a local watering hole featuring simple, delicious food with a focus on bacon, bourbon, community, and family.

Jana, her brothers Ben and Brian Caruthers, and parents John and Susan Caruthers (Mama Su)(along with almost all extended family) are Auburn alum that have all come together to make The Hound a family affair and new Auburn tradition.

There were many a night spent together on the family property in Lafayette, AL planning the Hound’s debut, including reclaiming fallen southern cedars from nearby forests, sawing, sanding, finishing and giving them new life in the bar and tables on which many more good times shall be had! Everything you see, from the entry doors, to the barnwood, bar, tables, and chandeliers were all Alabama reclaimed, milled, designed, and hand crafted by the Caruthers-Poirier clan. The community table, benches, and hostess stand were repurposed from the couple’s wedding, all which were built by Jana’s father for their wedding in 2010.
