I'm looking for a place to host a rehearsal dinner for Friday July 11 for around 30-50 people. Top priorities are:
-Good food (anything from gastro pub to asian fusion, pizza, etc is fine as long as it tastes good!)
-Affordability (Would like to spend $20-$45 per person and maybe do a cash bar or byob place?)
-Ambiance (We'd like to have the dinner around 7 pm so if the place has a nice outdoor patio that would be cool)
As far as location, we have blocks of rooms reserved at the HGI in Marina del Rey but I think most guests are actually spread out all over LA since only a few people have actually booked rooms. I'm open to have the dinner anywhere but I feel like we'll probably get the best deal/best food somewhere around the Marina, Venice, Culver City, West LA, etc
I read a few other threads and gathered that there are plenty of options but just wanted to see if you guys had any recommendations.
Places I like/am considering:
-26 Beach - nice patio and good food
-Hal's - upstairs room for rent
-Del Rey Kitchen - small but BYOB
-Westside Tavern - ate here before, food was pretty good and they have private rooms
-waterloo and city - saw this mentioned in another thread
-cafe del rey - Place looks nice but too expensive
-whiskey red - place looks awesome but has horrible food reviews??
