Looking for an extremely unique and fun restaurant in LA for a birthday party! Help?

Hi! I have done birthdays with multi-coursed Moroccan meals on the floor, Oaxacan parties at Guelagetza, greek food, korean bbq, but now I need a new idea!!! I need a restaurant for foodies, not too expensive, with good alcohol and lots of fun! Help? Thank you!

    1. Here's few off the top of my head.
      Gjelina has a private room upstairs that can do cocktails I believe.
      Cheese Store of Beverly Hills has a private room and odes lots of private parties.
      You could make your own margaritas and go to Maricos Chente.
      Shunji's has a big upstairs that is for parites.
      Giogio Baldi has a private room.
      Osteria del Piccolo may be up for a party on their outdoor patio.

      1429 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, CA 90291, USA

      7015 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038

      1. Without asking a lot more questions; I've made the following assumptions:

        1) Guelagetza entree prices are $15 or less and that's the price range your looking for.
        2) You all want to sit at one table.
        3) Your group is its own entertainment; however, anything live would be a plus.
        4) "good alcohol" means a full bar.

        Russian dinning is good for groups.

        Roberts Russian Cuisine - I've haven't made it there yet, but I'll use it as an example. The entree prices work. It maybe just beer and wine; however, I do see bottles of Vodka in the picture below so maybe it's byo? And if byo, it will bring down the cost of the meal. The picture shows a group of about your size (other pictures show the menu and more vodka):
