I'm looking to throw a cocktail party (drinks, apps, dancing) for about 150 people. It doesn't have to be super fancy or have a view of the world. Most event spaces are above my price range and seem to cater to a more corporate ideal. I'm looking for something simple, preferably a bar or restaurant that has a private space so I'm not paying for loss of revenue.
Ideally Manhattan but open to Jersey City as well.
Any suggestions from the amazing people out there in the world wide web?
