Foodie's 40th B'day - looking for a private space w/ great drinks and passed food

Hi All! We are throwing a 40th birthday party for a dear friend who loves good food and drinks. We are hoping for a private space (preferably with an outdoor option, but not a deal breaker). We would like to do small plates/passed aps for about 50-75 people. We don't want anything too stuffy or formal, but should be nice. Our top two themes would be either (1) tapas or (2) somewehre we could have raw bar and seafood options. THANKS!

Space for 30-40ppl, cash bar, passed apps...downtown??

We are looking to throw a party downtown for about 30-40 people. It would be nice to have a private space (where we can supply our own music/iPod)...we'd like to order apps/passed food for the party but have a cash bar. Downtown is preferable...do you know any places that may accomodate us? Minimums should not be a problem!

Thanks!

Private Dining Room w/ option to bring own drinks?

We are looking to throw a private party for about 30 ppl...but are trying to minimize the costs. Does anyone know of a restaurant that will host a private party but will allow us to bring our own drinks? In the alternative, do you have suggestions on nice yet not too pricey private party spaces?
