Help! Venue for Classy 21st Birthday Party

Harvard2010 | Jun 11, 2009 02:16 PM

Hi everyone,

First post! This fall is my 21st birthday and my parents are being generous enough to fund a little soiree (rather, they did it for my sisters so they have to do it for me too, recession be damned). While my sisters opted for the big-dorm-room-rager style 21st birthday, I'm not a big drinker so I'm just looking to find a venue off campus to treat myself and my friends to a fun and classy evening.

In order to make my 21st magical, please help me find a venue! Here are some specs:

-Location: Harvard Square (where I live) locales aren't really coming to mind unless you can think of something, so anywhere Boston if easily accessible by T (Red line preferred).
-Restaurants, Hotels, or even unique venues like old houses or museums. I do NOT want a pub or anything that remotely resembles a nightclub.
-Atmosphere: Dim lights, plush lounge-y feeling, lots of nooks that are good for conversations that will go late into the night. Going for classic, not trendy.
-Budget: Pretty big budget for hors d'oeuvres/booze, but hopefully the place will expect a minimum of food/booze and not have a room fee on top of that.
-People: 75 max, probably closer to 50 though
-Bonus: It'd be great if it happened to be a place with a good restaurant where I could get dinner with my family beforehand.

Thanks so much!
