Design firm trying to pinpoint a venue in Manhattan (no more north than Midtown) to host 60 guests in December. Looking for heavy hors d'oeuvres & an open bar with top shelf liquor. We're a really laidback group that obviously enjoys a well-designed space, would love somewhere with either a private room that's not too uppity or a smaller venue that could be rented out for the evening.
We've done everything from top floor lounge overlooking the city with with hired caterers to renting out a corner bar in the EV.
Thoughts, recommendations, or a general starting point..?
