I'm looking for suggestions on a venue that has a private or semi private outdoor area. please feel free to make suggestions, add comments, or ask questions.
I need to throw an engagement cocktail reception for my good friend and his new bride. Date is TBD. We are looking for an outdoor venue on a Saturday. We are targeting a 5pm to 7pm window (start time is flexible). About 25-30 guests. We would like to serve Hor d’overs and let the guests pay for their own beverages.
Please exclude ultra high-end choices (like Park Hyatt or Peninsula) or tourist traps like millenium park. Upscale venues, Neighborhood resturants & bars, and non-restruants venues that can accomdate catering will be considered.
