Bridal Shower

Any suggestions on Bridal Shower locations in Manhattan? 40-50 people, looking for a wine-bar feel....

  1. Mine was held at Lady Mendl's Tea Salon located in the Inn at Irving Place. The place is beautiful, makes you feel like your in an Edith Wharton novel and the food and champaign cocktails were great. It is not the coolest place in NYbut they do a lot of showers there so they know how to keep them running. It was great.

    1. I have two suggestions-
      one is paris commune- I went to a baby shower in the downstaris room and if was lovely- has a nice vibe, almost like a wine bar- it was set up with one long table- I dont know if it can hold that many ppl
      the other place is cibar on irving- (which might be lady mendl's) I went to a shower there and they had the whole space, bc it is no open for lunch. The only thing is the food was very light fare, finer sandwiches. But, the place is pretty and there are a ton of couches and the space is nice-
      I think brassierie 8 1/2 also has a private room that they can do showers in -
      I wasnt there, but my friend recently went to a shower at Choice in the 20's
      pretty much any place with a private space will work- u just have to find a place that you like and call around. It will also depend what your budget is
