Wedding rehearsal dinner Westside
I need a place to stage a wedding reheasal dinner June'08. It needs to be on the Westside, preferably Santa Monica. There will be 120 guests. We are currently considering the patio of the Buffalo Club and Shutters. Any ideas?
I make this recommendation often -- the Victorian House in Santa Monica on Main Street. With 120 people, you'll have the whole first floor and the patio. They do a great job decorating the place and the catering kitchen is in the house, so the food is really good. I had a dinner there for 125 people and they did a fantastic job.
Another option to consider is in Marina del Rey. Cafe del Rey would do a very nice job handling a group of this size. It would probably cost you $25,000 for that many people, but you'd get the whole restaurant to yourself and they'd do a great job on teh food and drinks. You could order off the menu or set the menu yourself.
