Cocktail Party (Annual Event) for Clients in October - Elegant & Tops in Food & Wine

Need restaurant recommendations for an elegant cocktail party - 30-40 business clients attending a convention in October. Thanks!

  1. For an event like that, it's hard to top the Salon Room at Mistral.

    1. I've done a number of events at State Room over the past 5 years. While your group is too small for their Great Room, the Harborside Rooms would work well. For an out of town group, the views of Boston and beyond are amazing - it's the 33rd floor of 60 State Street. The space is high end. Their current chef is a former Four Seasons executive chef, so the food is quite good with interesting presentations.

      1. If the convention is at the old Convention center, how about Troquet. Your clients could walk there.

        1. The first place I thought of was State Room.

            The event space upstairs at Erbaluce would work well too. Great people and incredible food.

              Erbaluce doesn't have a full liquor license, so it probably wouldn't work for a business cocktail party.
