Help me find a place to have a party for a wedding

Hi NYers, I'm looking for a nice restaurant to have a party for about 65-75 people, preferably downtown, E or W Village or Chelsea. It can' t be ridiculously expensive, and it should be able to hold a small band as well. (musicians wedding, lots of jamming going on...) Any ideas?

Thanks much.

  1. I was going to mention the Puck Building before I realized that you asked about restaurants. You might still want to check it out. I believe it has its own catering service. It should meet your needs, but I don't know about the costs involved.

    1. how about nolita house? depends how laid back you want, but i'd bet they could do a nice job, and have overheard weddings being planend there... guess it depends on how nice & upscale food you are going for. they do a live music/bluegrass brunch every weekend, so there's got to be room for that.
      it's small, but prob. right for that size crowd. i threw a co. holiday cocktail party there, and it went very smoothly. the owner, marc, is involved with private funcitons and very responsive, if that is helpful!
      just a thought, and right near the puck building if you check that out too.

      1. I don't know if there is room for a band, but I got married at Il Buco and it was amazing! Great food, great atmosphere, and excellent service. We took over the restaurant and I think it held up to 90 people. Do a search for their website - I think they have information about private parties on it.

          Puck building with catering will be expensive.
