30th Birthday venue ideas please!

I'm looking for a unique place to hold my 30th birthday at the end of March. Delicious passed apps, a bar and dancing are a must! Hiring a dj isn't a problem - I just need a great place that can accomodate 125-150 people!

I LOVE the idea of the Marvimon locations (, however, I really need the venue to be in the Hollywood/WeHo/Beverly Hills area.

Any ideas would be much appreciated - thank you!

  1. How much are you willing to spend?

    In Hollywood there are a lot of places like Dolce, Sky Bar, The Standard.....

    In Bevery Hills the W Hotel is nice.

    Lots of options but it all comes down to how much you want to spend to rent out any of these venues because that's what your going to have to do.

    Good Luck!!

    1. The Derby is available and all you need to do is guarantee $5000 for the bar. You can see if they have a caterer or bring in your own. You could get the Center for Exploring Food in Pasadena, they should be about $35-45 per person. I hope this is within your budget.

      1. How about Asia de Cuba. Just reserve the entire place.

        1. Thanks for the ideas, everyone! I would like a place that, if it doesn't have its own dj, at least has a dance area where that could be set up. I was thinking of spending between 5 and 7k total. I think the Derby is too far east but I love the idea!
