2007_04_arts_bdaybar.jpgA friend of mine is turning 30 and wants to find a space to throw a party. Do you know of any bars/clubs in the city or Brooklyn that are relatively cheap to rent out for a night and will let her have her own DJ? A backroom or downstairs would be ideal. Any suggestions would be great.

Sadly, all we do for birthdays is gather people at a bar, not rent out a room. While we've heard that Lolita will let you reserve the downstairs for free, we don't know enough people to warrant renting out a room at a bar. We'll open this one up to the masses. Gothamist readers, do you have any experience renting a bar out for a birthday?
