Anaheim Convention Center--Entertainment

I am going to be attending CamEx at the Anaheim Convention Center and I am looking for a cool, interesting place to bring about 20-25 clients for drinks and apps.
We would prefer someplace that isnt extraordinarily expensive, but it must be in close vicinity to Disney/Convention Center. This is my first time visiting Anaheim on business and would like to offer our clients an experience that involves a fun, adult atmosphere (ie. no screaming kids). Any suggestions from a local expert would be GREATLY appreciated!

      That place looks great! I will call to see if they have availability. Has anyone ever been there before to vouch for the locale?

      1. re: bayra1ae

        It's a beautiful venue, good food and has no kids running around. Note that it's in a hotel, so you'll likely see some kids (not many). I've been once for dinner and while it's nice, just haven't been compelled to return.

        Here's my review from last year: -- k'ya, Anaheim (quick review)

        We live in Anaheim and like Kya in hte Menage Hotel. It is very close to Disneyland and their whole menu is appetizers from different countries and areas in the US. Very tasty.

        Kya Restaurant and Bar
        1221 S Harbor Blvd, Anaheim, CA 92805

      3. Another possibility would be the Anaheim White House on Anaheim Blvd. about 5 minutes from the Convention Centre. The next place would be Mr. Stox on Katella.

        Napa Rose at the Grand Californian Hotel is certainly very nice and you can sit at the kitchen "table" and watch the food being prepared. Others have said things about kids being in there, but I have been on several occasions (mostly for business entertainment) and I've never seen any rowdy kids in there.

        There is also Ruth's Chris and Morton's on Harbor Blvd. if you prefer steak.

            I third Napa Rose. The sommelier there is one of the best in the country.

        1. How old are your clients & how much are you looking to spend?

          Though I haven't been, 300 (bowling/bar) looks fun at the Anaheim GardenWalk:

          You might be able to get a room (Regan's Room) at JT Schmid's across the Pond, er, Honda Center.

          1. As lovely as Napa Rose is, I think it will be extraordinarily expensive. Maybe you could start there for drinks in the lounge and then cruise over to K'ya. I've had my birthday there, and it was a very nice space. Reasonably priced, very few children, and only a few minutes from where you are.
