Lounge area for 20 people times square/mid town for drinks and appetizers

I'm hosting a work dinner and want to find somewhere fun to make a relaxed small plates / drinks dinner...a private room or lounge would be great but flexible. Office is on Broadway in the 50s. We'll have about 15 - 20 people. Ideally we wouldn't have to sit at table but be able to circulate and talk to everyone. Ideas?

      Thanks. I'll check it out. Also, have you heard of Latitude in Hell's Kitchen? Been there?

        Opia (57th/Lex) has a little den that you can reserve that has small couches....seats about 20. Decent appetizers.

      2. PS 450 on Park at 30th. Great sliders and other bites.

        1. The rooftop at 230 Fifth is awesome, too.

          1. Two suggestions:

            1. Kemia underneath Marseille on 43rd and 9th. I was going to have a party for my wife there, but it didn't work out, timing wise. looks perfect for what you are looking for.

            2. Disiac on 54th and 9th. Its a very small bar that would probably be willing to rent the whole place to you for a couple of hours --its a bar first, with great cocktails, but they have food too. They have an outdoor area as well, if its nice.
