So, I've been nominated to plan the "congratulations, you're divorced" party for a friend. The crowd will be mostly mid-30s and early 40s. We are thinking it will be a Friday post-work thing, so we are looking for a place where people could stream in and out between 6 and 9 pm. I imagine it will be consistently 8 people, but will probably grow to 15-20 at certain times. Soon-to-be divorced friend is a foodie, but has a vision of champagne at her party.
I'm open to anywhere in the city. I'm looking for that perfect place where we could avoid the long wait and/or super crowded smashed in bar scene, but still have the trendy/active feeling. If it exists, that is! Price isn't an issue. All suggestions welcome!
