Comfy party locations on Isthmus

Postby allobrogica » Tue Dec 11, 2007 11:01 am

Hey all -
I'm in search of a location downtown or near-east for a 100-120 person party in February (mingling, not sitdown). The place needs to be cozy/home-like - not institutional. Last year it was at Lazy Janes. It was great and I may do that again. But there will be more people and we will likely outgrow their otherwise ideal space for what I want. We need to be able to bring in all our own food & drink. One option on the short list last year was Fyfe's upstairs. But of course they are closed now. Another great option would be the Collins House but the city doesn't rent it out. If I only knew someone who owned a large home on the Isthmus. Thanks for any tips. The winner gets an invite (prerequisite: you must love chocolate and/or gumbo).
Thanks!

Yeah, that was my absolute first choice last year, but it's way too small. I've been to parties there and I talked to them about it last year.

I'd talk to Lazy Jane's. A couple other options would be Kennedy Manor Dining Room or The Madison Club, but I think they specialize in providing the food and drink.
