Private Party for 30-40 people...DRINKS ONLY

Hey guys I need some help here. My buddy is getting engaged next month and he wants me to plan a private party at a bar for about 30-40 people to celebrate after he pops the question. It will be just drinks and he just wants a place where we can all be together and somewhat secluded. Moderately priced (nothing too too expensive). Would prefer to be downtown, but it does not matter as long as the place is nice.

Any suggestions on where to begin?

  1. Lucy's Retired Surfer Bar could be your spot. They have a big room with a bar upstairs. Had a party there for our wedding, and it was great.

    1. Muriel's has great rooms upstairs that may suit your friend's needs. They also have a nice bar/patio downstairs.

      Claire's Bar at the St. Ann Marie Antoinette is another place to consider:
      you can see pics of the courtyard/pool area just out the doors of the bar. very secluded, intimate and reasonable drink prices.

      1. Ernst Cafe has a room upstairs with a bar and corner balcony. If you don't mind the location, The Bulldog on Canal Blvd. has a really nice patio which can be rented for a private party.
