I have been given the task of finding a suitable place to hold my company's holiday party in December. We will be about 50 people; it's a youngish crowd. We don't need to sit down at tables; a lounge-type place would be fine, even preferable. However, we do need to have a full bar, as that is rather important to many employees.
I would also like to find a place that serves tasty food (appetizer/snack type things are fine), as we have brought in food in the past and it has not exactly gone swimmingly.
Finally, we have a rather low price point - 40 dollars and under per head.
Locationwise, we are located downtown and would like to stay downtown for the party. East Village would be an ideal location but we'll consider others as well.
I appreciate your help with my dilemma. Thank you.
