Need a last minute party location in downtown DC
We want to have an informal party (15 to 18 people) on May 5th and are looking for a pub/lounge/bar with a private room available for cocktails and light fare.
Since people are coming from downtown and the Hill, the location has to be convenient to those locations and/or the Metro.
PS7s has great cocktails and small plates and a private room. I'm not sure the cost or if they would rent it out to a party that wasn't dining, but it is definitely worth checking into.
I would just start down opentable's private room list and see who has openings... But on a weeknight it shouldn't be as bad. You might check out Brasserie Beck, Poste and Zola too.
Rosa Mexicana and Oyamel both have private rooms - they are located in Penn Quarter near the Gallery Place metro.
