private bar space for 60-70 young professionals

Hi, I am looking for a place in Manhattan that will rent out private bar area for 60-70 young professionals on a Monday or Tuesday evening. Just looking for a place that will serve drinks & appetizers not dinner. Thanks for any advice.

  1. check the new wine bar on the UES side called pudding stones. i think there 2nd floor area will be able to accomodate your group and their food (french) is good.

      Grotto Azurra (broome/mulberry)also has a basement wine cellar with a bar that can fit your group. It's rented out a lot by different groups of young professionals for fundraisers , wine tastings etc. This would be a cheaper option between the two.

    2. Cibo has a separate bar room that can be used for private functions, but I have no clue as to whether it can accommodate 60-70 people.

      Choice Kitchen & Cocktails is another possibility.

      1. The Park Bar at 15 East 15th Street is a great place that will do a buyout.

        1. Can't beat the Brandy Library in TriBeCa. They'll give you the whole downstairs for parties of more than 30 or so.

          1. Depending on where you are coming from and how far you want to travel.
