My fiancee and I are looking for a venue in NYC at which to have our engagement party on a Saturday evening this May. We are inviting 80 guests, and we anticipate 50-75 showing up.
We ideally want a private room or at least a semi-private area with open bar and passed hors d'oeuvre. Our budget is approximately $100/person, including tax/tip/everything.
Our last consideration is that we need a place that will allow her two under-21 sisters in, so if we end up choosing a lounge we'd need one that would let under-21 guests in, be it with an Under-21 stamp or whatever other method they might use.
Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!
