Party for Mom's Birthday/ 50-60 people outside space a +.
Looking for recommendations - Mom's birthday.
50-60 people; cocktails, dinner, music, outside space a plus.
Open to all Manhattan neighborhoods.
Are there any budgetary restrictions? If not, you might want to consider Astra, located on the 14th floor of the D&D Bldg. During the day it's a cafe; however, in the evening, it's an event space. Beautiful views + an outdoor terrace. Charlie Palmer does the food.
Barbetta on restaurant row has a lovely garden. It was great for the wedding reception I attended, which had about the number of people you're inviting.
The Park on 10th Ave or Barolo in Soho both have lovely outdoor space and good atmosphere - Barolo is more upscale, The Park is funkier.
