Found out last minute that the bar I reserved for a surprise 30th bday party (semi private room, wine and beer open bar) has had a big issue, and I will need to change the venue within 5 days of the event. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Here are the details/needs:
About 40 guests
Party is april 18 - 9pm
Avg. Age is 27-35
reserved area (esp for surprise element)
Open bar options nice but not required
Avg drink price $10 cocktail/$5-7 beer/wine
Accessible for people commuting via Path, Penn Station and Port Authority
Mid East side I think would be best location for everyone to access. As we are having dinner before hand at 52nd and park and are staying near grand central. I think it's easier to hop down than go across, but willing to head all suggestions.
I know this is more for food, but would really appreciate anyone's insights.
