nyc - where to have bday party for dh?

Recommended Posts

so strangely enough, i wound up going to le souk last night...and realized i had been there about a year and 1/2 ago! it's a fun place and dh had a good time...i have to look into their packages tho...their food was decently priced - we had a 4 course meal with TONS of leftovers for $45/pp. however...the pitchers of sangria, which tasted like watered down fruit juice - like no alcohol in them - were $45/pitcher.

 

EDIT: he walked in as i was typing this so had to close quickly. will update tomorrow night - have a wedding tonight.

ok ladies, i'm back.

anyone ever hear of kion lounge? i just got off the phone w/ the event coordinator, mario, who was so nice on the phone. he said it's my party and they'll accommodate me in every way possible. it's $35 prix fix dinner (3 courses) and he'll give me open bar for $40/pp for 3 HOURS!!! AND, we'll have a private room and it's clubby later at night - but the dj isn't set for nov, so he can't tell me if it'll be indie rock or hip hop....

 

Kion Restaurant

Lauren,

 

FYI - we went to Spice Market (9 of us) for dinner/drinks on Sat night for part of my Bach Party and it was awesome and great for a big group!

Lauren,

We were not in a private room, I have some pics i will dig up for you. I didn't pay for anything the entire weekend so i have no idea how much it cost but the food was really good and the service was great - it seemed like every time i needed a drink there was someone right there.

I've never heard of Kion loung but that's a pretty amazing price he gave you! Spice Market us definately way more pricey. The food is great though and it's in the meatpacking district which is good is you wanna go dancing after.

ok ladies, the final spreadsheet is attached (w/ a funky name b/c i don't want dh to find it on my laptop). i checked out kion lounge and i suggest nobody ever goes there. lol, the food what not what was on the menu and it was kinda dingy and dirty. cool lights, but obviously trying to be something it's not.

 

so i think my final decision is stanton social. i'm going to make menus and write open bar on the bottom so people drink my money's worth...but i think i'll only do open bar for 1.5 hrs...does anyone think this is too tacky?

 

thanks again for all of your help - i totally appreciate it!!!

 

(oh yea, and we're going to spice market tomorrow for dinner during restaurant week - wound up being too $ b/c of holiday menus - bah! - but i still want to check it out.)
