Good place for a party for 75-100 people?
Two friends and I are looking to have a joint birthday party that may have between 75-100 guests on Saturday, July 9. I'm stumped as to what places could comfortably hold that amount without being too crowded/loud. We're fine with paying a deposit, but guests would pay for their own food/drinks. Los Angeles area.. Anywhere from the coast to the Fairfax district would be great, but that's flexible.
Thanks so much in advance!
Maggiano's in The Grove has a room that seats 60 and a room that seats 120, but I don't know if they would do off-menu dining for that many, or whether ANY restaurant would....they want you to order banquet-style off a set menu.
The rooftop lounge at the Thompson Hotel in BH might be worth a shot. I've been to several parties there and it's a great space with a fantastic view. There's plenty of room as it's on 2 levels. Everyone can order their food/drinks at the bar and keep separate tabs, or keep a tab open with a server. Oddly, the website states that it's only open to hotel guests, but that doesn't seem to ever be the case.
