30th Birthday Party for 20-25

Hey --

Looking for a FUN place for a 30th birthday party that has good food and preferrably a private/semi private room or one long communal table. Thoughts so far are:

Stanton Social
Double Crown

Any thoughts on the above or any additional suggestions along similar lines?

Thanks so much!

  1. There is a private room 1 level up at THOR that has a full glass wall that overlooks the main dining room. You can party before and after at the packed bar then go upstairs for a good meal. Check it out.

    1. STK has a private room. Def pricey. Not sure what you are looking to spend.

      1. i've never been to double crown, but have been to all of the other three...

        at suba when you are down the stairs and you go right, there is a room that i imagine could be privately reserved (though it is usually tables of diners and then i think around midnight on weekends usually turns into dancing i've seen) and seems like it would be a good fit for about 30 people.

        i dont believe stanton social has a private room as such, but i have been at a cocktail reception -- they sectioned off about a half to a third of the upstairs, but instead of a single table, it was where they have the couches set up. i can't envision how it would work for a sit-down group. it seems that it might work best there in this drinking, mingling, grazing environment.

        rayuela is a cool space too. hello - that tree! those bathroom sinks! excellent cocktails too. i bet they could do something in the upstairs space.

        STK below isnt a bad idea, but i bet it would be more expensive than all of the others you've already mentioned.
