Need a great holiday office party suggestion...

We are a young, fun office and need a space for the annual holiday party for approximately 100 people. Budget is $100-$150/person but if quality and fun over price. If we find a gem for less, that's fine too. Great dinner, fun atmosphere and of course alcohol. Dancing would be fun, but might be better left until after... Any suggestions would be appreciated!

  1. With that budget, you can probably get a private room in many hotels around town. For restaurant, try Buddakan. They have spacious private room and your budget should work.

      Buddakan is a great idea, but unfortunately, i called and they can only do a buy out of the whole restaurant and that's way over our budget. Thanks for the idea though.

    2. What about koi? You can always head down to the cellar bar...Maybe Bryant Park Grill?

        1. we used to do BPG every year and you really need to book WAY IN ADVANCE. you're cutting it SUPER close for 100ppl

          1. It's that time of year again. Looking for another great place. Last year we ended up at Les Halles and although the food was good, the space was a little cramped. Looking for about 50-70 people, open bar and passed hors d'oeuvres plus dinner. (set menu, family style, or buffet are fine options). Should be less than $125/person all included and have a fun, open atmosphere and more importantly, great food.
