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!
I can very likely find you something - it's what I do for a living. I'm happy to try if you want to shoot me a note so I can get some more details from you.
We used to do company parties on the cheap at Three of Cups. They have a private room in the basement that can definitely fit your party. Open bar and unlimited pizzas should definitely fit your budget. Loreley on the Lower East Side also has an affordable party room.
Thanks for the responses everyone, I'll definitely look into these options. I think Loreley might be really well-suited to my group.
