Need a private meeting space for 12-15 ppl

I need a space for this Thursday evening, 9-10:30ish. It must be quiet and food/drink availability would be much appreciated. SE or downtown preferred. Last week we used the Lucky Lab on Hawthorne but they wouldn't let us close the doors - we need privacy for our meeting. Any ideas?

      Thank you so much! There was no minimum or room fee and I booked it. The menu looks great! :)

        Oops- have to go by and see it tomorrow. The space may not work for a meeting. Event planning is a hassle! No wonder people pay big money for it.

          Good luck--I hope it works for you.

      2. Keep in mind for the future. Lots of locations. One organization I belong to books at Kennedy school once a month.

          Thank you - I did consider McMin's but they were booked for Thursday. Their food is mediocre at best but that's not really the focus here.

          As it turns out, the meeting was postponed, so I am still looking! Tabla looked great but that late at night they only have the full menu, not the tapas. I think my guys will be more "munchy" than truly hungry. It would be nice to find a place we could use consistently.
