Need a venue for a 'wedding-alternative' cocktail party

Coopers_mama | Sep 1, 2009 02:32 PM

My fiance and I are overwhelmed about the idea of planning a wedding, and have decided to have go to the Justice of the Peace route, and then have a fairly 'big party' instead of a reception. We are thinking maybe 100 people, mostly our friends (in their 25- 45 year olds), cocktails, 'maybe' hors douvres and a really great DJ. One of the places we considered is Cafe Atlantico, but are not sure how 'private' the space would be. Any other suggestions for locations?
Also, we have not put too much thought into the budget. We would like to have an open bar, and some finger food, but would prefer to spend more of our money on a super honeymoon. Thoughts....?
