Cocktail welcome reception in Manhattan

We are going to skip the normal RD for a cocktail welcome reception on Friday night instead.  We are looking for somewhere to host a two hour open bar (probably from 8pm to 10pm). Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Do you have a "headquarters hotel" that most of your guests might stay at?  This would be a great place to start.What neighborhood are you thinking of?

    Try Battery Gardens. The location is beautiful and the cocktail setup is amazing. We just had our reception there and my guests raved about the food.

    I am doing a similar thing for the Friday night before the wedding at The Smith. It's on 3rd ave and has a private room. The prices are extremely reasonable for NYC.

    Pescatore on 2nd Ave and 51st has a section of the resturant now that is a wine bar with great small plates.  I know a friend of mine went to a cocktail reception there and said it was great.  The food is always good and light so you can do mainly drinks.

    Thank you for all your suggestions. I just contacted The Smith.  We havent yet chosen a hotel but I agree that would be ideal. We have reached out to the Empire Hotel but havent heard back yet. Thanks!
