Sept Fantasy Football Draft- private room

budclerk Jun 23, 2009 06:23 AM

looking for a private room in NYC that could accomidate 20 of us on friday 9/11 for a fantasy football draft from say 6pm-midnight.

we would be drinking and eating.... more appetizers and bar food than actual dinner, and we dont mind paying for the room, meeting a minimum, or doing a set deal with a per person cost.

anythoughts on a place..... anywhere is manhattan could work

    You can look into Stout's on 33rd. Nephew hosted a party similar to what you want to do.

      I was thinking Stout too. They just did the sports bloggers conference there and I'd call their food above average for the genre.

      public house on 40th @ lexington has private rooms. they also have a private balcony. they have plenty of tv's plus one huge screen in the middle of the room that comes down for big events. the food is upscale bar food.

        Did a draft at Stout once, wasn't great. they don't have wifi... If money is no object, upstairs or back room at The Blue Seats on the LES is a solid option: http://www.theblueseatsnyc.com/

        Also, the back room at Stone Creek could be the perfect size - 27th between lex and 3rd. The owners name is Jon and i'm sure he'd be accommodating

          public house and blue seats are both great ideas..... hopefully they wont be to pricey.

          Wi-Fi is key... thanks for pointing that out

          in years past we've had our draft on a monday or wednesday and have had no problem finding a space, but this year a FRIDAY is the day that works and we have to go with it

          thanks for the ideas.... keep em coming, ill report back with progress

            second stone creek. i bet they'd give you a discounted beer for every cowboy you draft.
