Anyone know of a good party spot?

We're trying to throw together a party for 25 of our out-of-town friends the day after our wedding, and I'm stumped.

-Cheap ($40/head)
-Accommodating (they have the space)
-Easy access (subways close)
-Fun, funky, different? (ie, a beer garden, bbq, ethnic...)

I need help, yo. Thanks CH community.

    Obvious choice, Sripiphrai back patio would be very nice--pretty and private, Woodside, Queens. If you've never been, it's wonderful, and tons of posts about it. Would be more like $20 a head-- not byob, though. Subway there.

      It's kind of a schlep though...not really easy from Manhattan...

      You might try Enzo's on Prospect Park West and 16th in Brooklyn. It is right next to the 15th St/Prospect Park F train stop and they have a nice back deck

        - Radegast Hall Biergarden (williamsburg): Cheap, Accomodating, Fun
        - El Almacen (williamsburg): BYOB (I think it still is), Easy Access (Right next to bedford L-stop), Different (Argentinean Food)... accomodating (not sure. you'd prob fill the entire space).
        - Miss Favela: Accomodating (open airy space), Fun (brazilian samba music and fruity drinks), Different (Brazilian Botequiem Food)
