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!
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.
normally when i've been invited to such parties, the arrangement has been to serve prix fix meals for which the guests pre-pay when they rsvp, along with offering an open bar at the event.
can't imagine any venue offering to keep separate tabs for each of 100 guests.
