I'm planning birthday drinks for a friend (no dinner) and am having a very difficult time finding a lounge that either (a) makes/serves cake or (b) allows you to bring in your own.
Even venues where I offered to buy a room (e.g. Bourbon and Branch) won't allow it! Any suggestions? The main reason why it's important is that one of my birthday gifts was going to be a super cool custom cake for the birthday boy/guests.
My preference would be for something in Union Square/Civic Center/FiDi.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
