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...
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.
THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE
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.
THE UPTOWN ONE
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.
THE GAME ROOM
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.
THE WHOLE DAMN PLACE
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.
