I am organizing a networking event in Downtown Phoenix (near the SHERATON PHOENIX DOWNTOWN HOTEL 340 N. 3rd St. Phoenix, AZ 85004).
I have spent a good amount of time researching and not getting as far as I would like. I am looking for two different venues close to each other for a dinner and the networking event.
The restaurant should be high end, able to accommodate around 12-15 people, and not to exotic.
Here is an example of a restaurant we have used in Toronto:
After this dinner I am organizing a networking event for a group of around 100-150 people. I would again like somewhere high end and sleek with a nice bar, good finger food and hopefully a patio. We would need the event to be in a private area or we would consider taking over the whole space.
Here is an example of a venue we have used in Denver:
For the lounge space I have been looking into the following: MercBar (a bit far), BarSmith, 1130 and a few of the famous sports bars (to casual).
Anyways, any suggestions would be appreciated.
