Events, Party Spaces & Big Restaurants

Hello Food Talkers!

I am tasked with helping a family member setup a surprise birthday party for his lady. Looking for a spot with a lot of space that is young, scene-y with a little swank (no dives) for 40-50 people. I’m looking at Manuela and ERB type places. Can be anywhere from Santa Monica to DTLA. Budget is $5-6K. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

/edit

Sorry I take this suggestion back.

Did I read that Mother Wolf has private rooms?

OpenTable’s list might have some ideas:

Yes, I think I saw someone post about MW’s event space. They’re so hot right now I’m not sure they’d do it for that budget but I’ll reach out. Thanks for the list.

Sounds like you might benefit from getting a party planner.
I went to a party of a friend of a friend and they used a event space over by Majordomo. They transformed it into a carnival/circus with games, entertainment, full bar, food trucks and snack stations. Let me see if I can find any contacts for you.

Edit:
Event space - The Revelry
Planner - Martha & Co.
Bartender - Crystal Bartenders
Food catered by The Habit and a Columbian food truck
Snacks included popcorn, churros, ice cream bars, and cotton candy

I am the free party planner. :grin: It’s short notice, like two weeks. #youngpeople! That would be awesome but I don’t think we can pull a carnival off in that time.

This is great and just what he probably had in mind… if he had come up with it weeks ago! :grin: But I’m going to call them anyway. You never know. Thanks!

Not sure abut the pricing but Redbird in DTLA has some excellent event space options. On the other end of town, there is the Rose in Venice.

I didn’t try because of the budget, but won’t hurt to try.

This is a helpful thread for others who may be looking, so I’ll try to post info as I get it.

First up: Hatchet Hall. They can do it in the Old Man Bar with appetizers, but for that many people in the restaurant it would have to be a buyout on the patio for $16K+. Sounds fair, I guess, just not in the budget… and the Old Man Bar, while cool, isn’t what he had in mind for her.

Will contact Gjelina. Thanks!

Fogo de Chao is a good one for his carnivorous Dad and his friends. I’ll keep that in mind. But son is a vegetarian and though he’ll inevitably be paying for meat I don’t want to assault him with it… I’ll save that for Father’s Day. :face_with_hand_over_mouth: He can have the delish salad bar.
