I’m having my reception at the Upper Crust (http://www.tucnyc.com).  Its a small space (80 for sit down dinner, 120 for a "supper buffet") on the first floor.  Its basically a blank space that you can do with whatever you want with.  The Upper Crust was a caterer first (and still is) so the food is supposed to be amazing (havent tasted it yet but they have done parties for the food network). They say that their weddings typically cost between $30-$40k which includes food, drink, linens, band and flowers I think.  Good luck!

A band that was recommended by the guys at the upper crust.  They arent a "wedding band" – so I am not sure how to find them on the internet!

My soon-to-be BIL and his wife got married at 632 on Hudson (www.632onhudson.com), and it was a really cool space and an unusual reception.  I think they had about 90-100 people.  The building is an old house, with rooms off a central staircase and a gorgeous roof garden.  Since none of the rooms is big enough to hold all 90 guests, the reception had the feel of a relaxed house party, with dancing in the central foyer.  You would have to hire an outside caterer, but I think the house has so much ambiance you could save on decorations (I think they only had bouquets, for example–no centerpieces).

We are using Kenny Pang – his pictures are amazing! Check out his blog, as opposed to his website – pics are much better there.  http://www.kennypang.com

I second 632 Hudson. It’s such a lovely space, and intimate!

We’re having an at home reception at the penthouse in the Hotel on Rivington.  It’s a really chic and unique space.  I don’t think it would be great for a sit down dinner, but for a unique cocktail party (which is what we are having) it’s great. And it has a nice rooftop terrace!
