Hey lovely Sheffield people! I need to pick your brains!
I am organising a night out for a large group of people, ranging in ages from 18 up. As there will be 20-30 of us (possibly more!), it will be difficult to all get together by just meeting in a bar. I am looking to book somewhere where we can all meet and have a few drinks/ chat/ dance for a few hours before deciding where we want to move on to. This way, the older crowd who don't want to go 'clubbing', can still come and socialise for a couple of hours without feeling out of place. We want somewhere lively where we can have a dance but not with the music so loud we can't have a natter (that will come later in the night!).
The ideal place would have been the bottom bar at Forum as has tables but room to dance, music playing to dance to without blaring out etc, but this is already booked for the night we want.
The other option I was given was a booth at Vodka Revolution but I'm not sure if this is too full on to start the night at (we'll be meeting about 8?), and it's normally quite a young crowd. I'm not sure the booths are big enough either? Anyone have any experience of booking these?
Anyone have any suggestions or ideas where we can meet/ book?! (Probably from 8-10/11 till we move on!). Thanking you muchly!
