Office Holiday Party

Hi everyone~
I am in charge of planning our office holiday party and I need to book now before everyone is filled up. What are some good restaurants that will hold a party of 25-30 that are very close to a metro? Our office is by Metro Center.

TIA

  1. You don't mention price...but I'm assuming you are going to want a private room.

    I would check out Bistro D'Oc, Acadiana, Firefly, Darlington House, Clydes, and Central.

      We did Acadiana last year. It was great, very reasonable - and I booked it two weeks in advance. So you don't need to worry too much.

    2. I recommend Gordon Biersch on 9th and F. Former bank bulding, the private space is in the vault! Food may not be fantastic, but the beer and the prices are holiday-party appropriate.

        Possibly an upgrade over Gordon Biersch, if that is the direction you are heading, is the District Chophouse on 7th St. Coincidentally, also a former bank building with a private space in the former basement vault. The beer is much better, as is the food (albeit from only a limited sampling).

        1. re: SoxFan1

          I agree about the beer, but the private room is in a dank basement area, near the restrooms. There is potential for a large party on the main floor, but it would be loud. Your best bet would be to take a walk to some of these places and talk to the managers.

        1. Thank you for all the suggestions. Price should be $20 per person & that should include tip. Where is Acadiana? What was on the menu for your gathering?

            I haven't held a party at Acadiana but I'm pretty sure it will be more than $20/person. Actually most of these places recommended are above that price range I imagine.

          2. since the OP didn't mention price....$20pp inclusive is difficult. Aim for someplace like Lauriol Plaza or Busboys and Poets that are already pretty cheap to eat at would be my recommendation.

            I know there is a busboys at 5th and K.
