      City hall has a great room in the basement with a bar and plenty of room -- great atmosphere.

        I'd check out Bayard's, which is at One Hanover Square. Its a really gorgeous restaurant in a landmark building. I was there for dinner a few months back and was very impressed with the food & decor. I had noticed there were several rooms, and was told they do a lot of holiday/private parties.

          I work for the PR agency who represents Bayard's and it is a fabulous place for a holiday party. It's a few blocks from ground zero and after the attacks, even the pastry chef pitched in with the chef of the steak and seafood house below (Harry's, owned by the same family) to provide hot meals for the rescue workers in the area. The owners are very friendly, they have excellent food and many of the private rooms have very cozy fireplaces. It's a real jewel.
