Semi-Private/Private Room in Dallas area for 30th Birthday Party
Hi ya'll! I'm looking for ideas for a semi-private/private room (or just flat out awesome location) for 15-20 people for a 30th birthday celebration. I've looked into Five Sixty at Reunion Tower, but they seem too expensive and "into themselves" because of the view? They have a $2500 food+drink minimum for a semi-private room with limited, planned menus. They also have a 10-person max reservation table.
I don't mind spending $100-$125/person (obviously wouldn't mind spending a little less) if the location and food/drink warrant the price. I'm not into paying $50+ per glass of wine, however. While I like upscale, I like a good value as well. The place can be casual to trendy to upscale.
I'm planning on Saturday, June 21st at about 8pm. HELP!
Did you try the rooftop at Urban Rio in Downtown Plano?
I checked it out for a company event once before and loved it but the company budget wouldn't allow it.
How about Tei-An? They have a private room that's the size you're looking for, prices are more reasonable (though 560 does serve their food in great quantity), and they have a fantastic roof as well where you could go after.
Lark on the Park might work. They have a private room just to the side of the entrance.
I think that Mansion has a private/semi-private room that would fit your group. (And anyway, a lot of their rooms are pretty). They have tasting menus, so you can easily control costs, and maybe they'll cut you a deal on wine/liquor.
I would imagine that most of the high-end steak houses have private rooms, but those strike me as being just kind blah. (For example, I've been to functions at Cool River and Del Frisco's).
I like the food at Bijoux, and I think that they have a private room. It might be on the pricey side though.
City Café would probably accommodate you, but I'm not sure if you really want to have a 30th birthday party around a bunch of senior citizens. The food is solid, though unspectacular.
Let us (or me) know what you end up choosing, as it's always handy to have this sort of information.
