Fun Place to Throw a Party?
I'm throwing a birthday party and wanted to get some bar/restaurant suggestions from the hounds. There will be about 20 people (25-30 year olds). I'd like the venue to be somewhere between Santa Monica and Downtown, as far south as Culver City, as far north as where the 405 meets the 101.
As far as venue type, either bar or restaurant works. I was thinking of just meeting for drinks, but if the board has some fun dinner suggestions for a large group, that works too. I'd like to avoid hot-spots that will be jam-packed on a Saturday night, and I'd like drink prices stay within the $7-10 range. A separate room or nook to hang out in would be ideal, but not a necessity.
Lots of ideas:
Angel's Supper Club
All of the above have a separate area for your party, and drinks in that budget (especially if it's anywhere near happy hour)
60 N Venice Blvd, Venice, CA 90291
822 Washington Blvd, Venice, CA 90292
Warszawa is a nice space and great suggestion.
if you did food, what's the budget? something like Dar Maghreb or Moun-of-Tunis is fun for the belly dancing and eating with hands.
there's also Kiss lounge at Beso.
1414 Lincoln Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90401
7651 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90046
6350 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028
Guelaguetza is a fun place for drinks and relatively inexpensive, but good quality food. At the Olympic location on Saturday night, they usually have a marimba band. I believe that location has a "nook" area for parties.
