Restaurant for 40th Birthday w/private room

We are trying to remember that we are not getting too old and are looking for a restuarant where we can take over the whole thing, or have a private room for dinner for about 40 people. After dinner we would like to clear away the tables and dance the night away to pathetic 80s music. Has to be downtown and have a funky vibe.

    Funky vibe AND pathetic 80's music at the same time? asking for a lot...

      Quince has a private room that is large enough for your group. The room (or rather, lounge area) comes equipped with a sound system, I think, so you can blast your Flock of Seagulls or Spandau Ballet soundtracks.

        At only 40 you'd feel quite young at Quince. It's a mature crowd.

        Don't know about the privacy factor, but what about combining dining at Terroni and then going to Courthouse Saturday's? All under one roof.

          I disagree. I'm 25 and felt just fine there on a Saturday night at 8pm. Plus, if you're in a private downstairs space, the other clientel don't really affect one's own vibe.

            Maybe it's just been my luck. When my girlfriends and I have been at Quince we've been the youngest people in the room. That's not very young, trust me. All I could think of was this person celebrating now the 2nd milestone of denial birthdays may feel like that bank ad. "Where'd you come from? I'm from your future" kinda thing.

            Don't get me wrong. I have nothing against the decor, the demographic, the dining, or the wining. It's a lovely place. I just thought that based on my experiences there, which may not be the norm, I wouldn't be inspired to hoist my skirt and yell Happy Birthday.
