I'm based in San Francisco, but my company wants to throw a cocktail networking event in NY for prospects and clients. The idea is to have an open bar with passed or stationary hors d'oeuvres. The event will take place sometime mid to late February, and I understand it may be cold during that time of year and the weather might deffer guests from attending. Therefore, I'm looking for a place that's on everyone's "must try" list and easy to get to using the metro.
So, I'm reaching out to you, New York, for ideas on a venue. It could be a hotel or a restaurant, and my budget is about $10k all in.
