This is my first post, hope I'm not breaking any rules. I'm looking for suggestions for a venue to host the reception party after my wedding. Above all else, we're looking to keep things very casual and simple - in other words, as cheap as possible. Here is some key info:
-Will be held on a weekday afternoon
-Party size: Around 20
-Budget: $1500 or so, but we'd be THRILLED to do it for considerably less.
-Food type: We'd like to avoid Asian and Indian foods. Just about anything else is fine. This includes casual fare like pizza, burgers, and bar grub.
-Location: pretty much anywhere in Manhattan, we have no problems moving around!
We don't need to fully rent out a restaurant, nor do we need a private room. We don't need a full course, either. We just need a place where we can enjoy some tasty bites, a few drinks, and enjoy everyone's company. I would be extremely happy to hear any suggestions you have for an affordable venue. Thank you in advance!
