Company Party--lower budget, east village area, help!
Somehow, I'm involved in helping find a place for the company Christmas party. Basically, we need to find a place in the east village or south of the 14th street area downtown. It has to be able to accommodate 45 people, preferably with some kind of space separate from other guests (doesn't have to be a whole room). The budget for a couple hours of open bar and passed light food, with tax and tip is $90/person. Does a place with decent food, booze and space exist for this price in the downtown area? The budget is not negotiable, so I'm having a hard time finding anything for that price in December. HELP!
