Bachelor Party

Disclaimer. This is a BP for a 40 year old bachelor who is finally taking the dip. All other attendee are married and NOT looking to go the traditional BP route. Additionally, the bachelor is a foodie. Therefore, we are looking for some solid recommendations for a destination which combines great food and atmosphere. Most attendees are from Manhattan (the bachelor and I are not) so we'd like to hit a newer establishment. I truly appreciate all suggestions. Thank you.

    Dovetail is new and making a splash!

      I'm not seeing Crispo at all for this.

      I'm with Sno and seeing steak...Strip house is good, or maybe go old school at Keens.

      for new maybe craftsteak..

    2. Strip House befits a bachelor party with the double entendre. It's a steak joint with red velvet walls. leather banquettes, and subdued burlesque art.

        These are great suggestions. One that came my way by a non-hounder was Buddakhan? Has anyone been?

        1. re: Late to the party

          You all may actually really enjoy Buddakan. Besides hot eye candy, both the decor and food is great, IMO.

        2. re: snoballz

          I like the Strip House suggestion, but for some reason a steak joint has been excluded by the groom.

        3. I'd also love some input on Death & Co, Pegu Club, Little Branch and/or Milk and Honey as a post-dining destination.

            Big fan of Pegu Club. Not sure how many are in your party (they have some lounge-style tables they could push together and a few larger banquets (sp?), but if you have something like 10 or 12 people that may be a problem.

            Would probably be a problem at the other places too now that I think about it.

            I would give Pegu a call, I think they take reservations.

            1. re: Late to the party

              Death & Co. is lively and edgy. Little Branch and Pegu Club aim for a little more refinement, though they are by no means quiet. For sheer cocktail enjoyment, my preference is Little Branch.
