Drink in the Season! Private Party at Blackbird

By Anthony Todd in Food on Dec 14, 2010 6:20PM

At the other end of the spectrum from yesterday's low key New Year's Eve dinner, today we cater to the high rollers. Want to really impress your foodie friends? Rent out the party room at Blackbird. Sure, it's pricy, but it's a party you will remember for the rest of your life.

The cost - $250 per person. The room can accommodate 48 guests for dinner. What do you get for the money, aside from the glamour? The party includes a 10-course tasting menu with wine pairings. You also get your own private entrance, private restrooms, a bar and lounge and a dedicated kitchen cooking your dinner. If you wish, you can also do passed appetizers and cocktails from the private bar.

Contact Blackbird for more information - ask for their private events coordinator. The only catch? It has to be booked by December 16th, so get right on it! If any of our readers book this, we expect an invitation.

Blackbird is located at 619 W. Randolph Street. All photos by Douglas Reid Fogelson Photography.
