christmas party in LA
Can anyone suggest a good place for a group of 35-45 people for an office Christmas/holiday party? Desired location would be able to offer hand passed hors d'œuvres first followed by a sitdown meal. A Private or seperate room would be optimal as well. We have already done: "Grace", "The Highlands", and "Red Pearl Kitchen" other years. Look forward to hearing some suggestions!
Cafe Del Rey in Marina Del Rey would be a good option, but then again, I don't know your geographic preferences.
I've thrown Christmas, sit-down dinners at Cinespace, which allows private parties until 10 p.m. or so, then you're all given VIP access to the club when it opens at 10ish. I've also thrown parties at the Canal Club in Venice, though the management there is extremely disorganized.
Cafe Bizou on Ventura has a nice back room that you could rent out.
Second the rec for Chez Mimi.
Might call Lilly's French Cafe in Venice.
Gardens at Glendon or Napa Valley Grille in Westwood might also be good to look into.
How about Campanile? Someone just posted something that said they had a wonderful wedding reception at Campanile, so I am guessing they could handle your christmas party.
