A bit of an odd request. Looking for a low-key venue to host a happy hour/cocktail event for the night before the wedding (Friday night around 6 - 10). This will be for a mix of out-of-towners and locals (though most of our wedding guests are locals). As some of the traveling guests will be bringing their kids (ages 1 through 5), looking for a place that is more kid-friendly... or at least kid tolerant.
Capacity for 30 - 40. Around 5 kids (10 at the max). We were thinking some place like the Cannibal but definitely open to thoughts. If there are some smaller venues we can maybe rent out or places we can get a private room or alcove that might solve the children factor.
I should mention, wedding venue is in Flatiron but open to any midtown or downtown locations. Thoughts?
