Party On

The Hot List: 2013 Holiday Parties

Well, you’ve found it. The shining, beaming, angels-choir-singing list of places you need to be calling right now to book for your holiday party. There will be dancing. There will be tequila. There will be awkward moments at the office the next morning. It’s all part of the magic...

UD - The Dining Room at Louie and Chan

The Dining Room at Louie and Chan

You Require: A small, quiet space for a family-style meal.
You’ll Receive: An ancient wood-and-china parlor where you’ll craft the entire menu with the chef (28-day-aged-ribeye option: check) and do some after-hours dancing downstairs after the meal. Small and quiet only does it for so long.

Holds 16, Louie and Chan, 303 Broome St (near Forsyth), 212-837-2816

Salle Privée/Cave du Vin at Lafayette

Salle Privée/Cave du Vin at Lafayette

You Require: Versatility, wine and... knowledge of the inner workings of a clock, for some reason.
You’ll Receive: Either a dinner-party-sized hideaway behind, yes, a clock (Salle Privée). Or a massive wine cellar full of, yes, wine (Cave du Vin). But next year, it’s a clock full of wine or bust.

Holds 20 and 130, Lafayette, 380 Lafayette St (at Great Jones), 646-442-7850

UD - The Copper Bar at the East Pole

The Copper Bar at the East Pole

You Require: Chartreuse cocktails and a huge communal table.
You’ll Receive: The canvas-ceilinged private dining room atop the East Pole. You’ve got that communal table and your own cocktail bar. ’Bout time.

Holds 60, seats 30, The East Pole, 133 E 65th St (between Lexington and Park), 212-966-6032

UD - Royal Shuffleboard Club

Royal Shuffleboard Club

You Require: A ton of space and something to keep everyone busy.
You’ll Receive: 17,000 square feet of shuffleboard courts, tropical-themed bars and any one of a series of food trucks. The Instagrams after this one will be priceless.

UD - La Cenita

La Cenita

You Require: A mezzanine, two dining rooms and two full bars in Meatpacking.
You’ll Receive: A fully DJ’d affair with all those things, plus a ceviche bar and a healthy dose of tequila. Your standard-issue bad-decision package.
