Sweet Sixteen Venue

Buddakan, Tao, Hurricane Club any other ideas? I'm concerned since these are all club scenes on Saturday nights. Any suggestions for a beautiful venue where the girls can get dressed up and celebrate my daughter's sweet sixteen? She is planning to invite 15-20 girls and I would prefer to keep the price in the $50- $60 range.

        While we checked the responses they didn't work for my daughter. As you can see she is leaning more toward the high end clubs and Chinese is no longer a requirement. She definitely wants Saturday night and I am wondering if anyone has any experiences at these places on Saturday night.

          You might want to post an update to your old thread letting people know what happened, with a link to this one.

          How about Stanton Social? Public?

        1. Honestly, since Tao has seen it's heyday as far as a club "scene," I'm sure that you could get a reservation there. The same probably cannot be said for Hurricane Club.
          You could try for Buddakan - also, what about Ruby Foo's? Similar-ish idea and, like Tao, you probably would not have any issues w/ much of a club "scene."

                  We had fun checking out all the suggestions but ended up at Ruby Foo's. It's an ideal location, got some great photos in Times Square. They use BR Guest to organize the catering end and I must say Francesca was wonderful. Easy to deal with. Asked all the appropriate questions. Everyone had a great time!
