Work Holiday Party venue needed!

lindsrae7 Nov 2, 2009 12:15 PM

I'm in the process of searching for a nice venue to hold a holiday party for our office. Approximately 35-40 people will be in attendance. Location should be downtown and the prices shouldn't be too high. I know this is last minute and I've got my work cut out for me - - any and all suggestions are welcome and MUCH appreciated!

      I know that Forte does really nice private parties and will work with your pricing. There is lots of parking and it is right downtown.

        And for something a little outside of the usual for staff parties, you could try Harlem. I did a staff event there in the summer it was a lunch but it was great.

          Try the King Street Social Kitchen. I just ate there today for a work lunch and was pleasantly surprised - it's in the Hyatt on King (formerly Holiday Inn on King). The place was empty when we went, but the food was pretty tasty and it's not too pricey. The space is pretty interesting too - it's kind of segmented so there's smaller private dining spaces and an area which looked like it could be a bar/lounge. It's all slick and modern, they just reno'd the entire hotel I think.

          Probably far too late for this year, but maybe this will help for next year:
