I am trying to put together a group of 10 people 20 & 30 somethings, most of whom have lived in Manhattan and now live in LA. Prefer something with good atmosphere, reasonably priced and bar scene for people coming later.
Asia de Cuba/Balbao does not work as too much hassle at the door for Skybar. Koi or Katana could get far too expensive given my ordering habits...
Was thinking Cafe des Artise or possibly Argyle Hotel. Avalon Hotel could be good but the food is so average and somewhat expensive.
