30th surprise birthday party - inexpensive but cool - help please!

A young staff member wants a fun special location to surprise her husband, preferably a private room, and good music - dancing not necessary. 10-20 people. The hitch is she can only afford up to $600. Can be appetizer buffet only. Not everyone drinks - so part of the quandary is to get a reasonable deal and not have to pay for open bar. All locations are fine. Birthday boy likes Mexican (or anything) but can't have anything too tacky as she will invite some work colleagues he doesn't know well. (He is a creative type-from Central America.) One idea is an alcove room at Spice Market, but that may be too costly. She found Mustang Grill on the internet, may fit the budget, but we don't know anyone who ever went there. I suggest she ask guests to pay for their own drinks and do Spice Market. Any suggestions or similar party experiences?
