Need suggestions for a group of 40

hello all,

my friend has a bachelor party coming up and we are trying to find a place to host a dinner with all of us. there's about 40 of us give or take. None of us are local so would love some recommendations for spots in Portland.

thank you!

    The private Kon Tiki Room at the new Trader Vic's in the Pearl seats up to 50, and has a big screen TV if you want. Tiki bars are coming back! :) You'll be ahead of the curve.

      ...and I have to say, the Mai Tais are really delicious.

      Another idea would be to do a restaurant buy-out at a place like Sunshine Tavern. Really good food and drink and fun games too like shuffle board and Pac-Man and Donkey Kong (the games are all free all the time, btw). They make a killer $15 steak and fries, a great pizza, burger, fried oysters and lots more - decent beer list, slushy margarita machine, homemade softserve. It would be a fun place to throw a party like a bachelor party. Plus the owners also own a catering business, so if you need something a bit more special than their menu provides, that is totally possible. http://sunshinepdx.com

          trader vic's was a great venue for the group! their room was sound proof, they had a TV to watch the NCAA tourney, and after the games we hooked up our iphone to play our music. they seemed a bit inexperience however handling the bills. however they had a nice attention to detail with a custom menu for us. thanks again for the suggestion!

          also the food was good.

            Excellent! Thanks for reporting back. I'm really happy that it all worked out so well. Big groups like that can be very tricky for all involved.
