Where to hold an engagment party in vibe

I'm looking for somewhere great to have an enggament party. We dont want to do a stuffy sitdown dinner anywhere. We want all of our friends to come. Maybe aplace with a private room but with a lounge kind of feel. We want to do appetizers and champaigne. We dont want to pend anymore then about 500$.
We checked out the private room at Spark which was very hip but they had a minimum of 1500.

any ideas?

  1. Congrats! A friend rented the back room at the Library Bar for a birthday celebration, and it was truly great. Really cool, yet relaxed vibe. How many on the guest list?

    1. I have no idea what the pricing is like, but I've always thought the Edison would be a really cool place to have a private party (they have a special room for groups). However, you don't mention how many guests you plan to have? $500 total sounds pretty low to me for more than about 25 people...

      1. Cafe Pinot in DTLA has a great outdoor patio. I'm not sure on the pricing, but I'm sure if you give them details and budget, they can work something out. I've never personally had an event there, but I do know they have many events in the patio area. Chef Kevin Meehan is great and I'm sure they'll do a great job. Good luck!
