Holding a Reunion in NYC

We are a small private school from Mobile, Alabama. We are traveling to NYC to hold a reunion for our alumni in the NYC area. We are expecting about 50 people. We need a central, affordable location where we can have open bar and appetizers. Any ideas?

  1. What do you mean by affordable? Central, with an open bar, already means not so affordable.

    $100 pp, $200 pp?

    1. re: mitchleeny

      I would rather not have a per person charge. I would like to pay the bar tab and order some heavy hors d'ouerves.

    2. We had a similar gathering (except our employer picked up the tab) at Cowgirl NYC. There is information on the web page about parties, and an email address you can use for more info:

      And here's info on bar and appetizer options:

      1. How about McCormick & Schmicks?

        Midtown location (across from Radio City Music Hall)

        Downstairs / lower level can be cordoned off for your reunion

        Food and bar drinks basic enough and generally wallet-friendly
