reception venue for 300

I represent a group of Brits who are looking to hold a reception in LA next June during a conference at the downtown convention centre.
We are looking at about 300 guests and probably around $60 a head. What we'd really like is great location, open bar (hey, we're British) and a small amount of good quality canapés. If there was some kind of Brit-link for the location even better but we would want to avoid British-pub type venues. Anyway, that's not essential.
Someone suggested the casa del mar in Santa Monica and they can do something in our price range but I don't know whether asking people to travel out that way from the downtown area is realistic with the traffic/ distance. It would be around 9-11pm mid-week.
Can any locals help with any suggestions for good places. It's hard trying to plan this without being able to check places out for ourselves
cheers
