Today’s side deal houses your event like a viceroy, with venue space in the swanky (Le) Poisson Rouge. Your Groupon is good for a four-hour rental of this year-old, 10,000-square-foot Greenwich Village expanse. Pick from three options, depending on the size and needs of your corporate event, fashion show, film screening, birthday party, or superhero convention:
- For $2,500, you get the Main Room event space, which is good for 150–600 guests (an $11,000 value).
- For $1,000, you get the soundproof Gallery Bar space, perfect for parties of 50 to 150 people (a $5,000 value).
- For $3,200, you get both adjoining areas (a $16,000 value).
In addition, you’ll need to choose a bar package. Groupon customers will receive a reduced price for each of the offered packages: top-shelf open bar for four hours is $50 per person (normally $80 per person); mid-shelf is $45 per person (normally $70 per person), and well drinks are $40 per person (normally $60 per person). The bar package is not included in your Groupon.
At (Le) Poisson Rouge, you’re renting more than just a space—a word that implies four walls full of nothing; instead, you’ll be getting an arena fully stocked with modern furnishings and warm ambience. The venue offers technically impressive amenities, such as audiophile-quality sound system and lighting setup, movable stages, plasma TVs, and a hardwood sprung dance floor. Driven by an experimental philosophy, the venue is flexible and accommodating. During its short existence, (Le) Poisson Rouge has already proven its range of expertise by playing host to such events as the 2009 New Yorker Festival and the 2009 TONY Eat Out Awards, and such performers as Paul Simon, Moby, and Norah Jones. If it’s good enough for Moby, it’s good enough for anyone.
(Le) Poisson Rouge was voted Best New Rock Club of 2009 by Village Voice. Shecky’s recently featured (Le) Poisson Rouge, saying: > * Just when you thought all artistic integrity had been sucked out of NYC’s cookie-cutter nightlife, Greenwich Village gets a performance space fit for orchestras and punk rockers alike. . . . The black and red interior features a fish tank chandelier in the entrance (with red fish, of course) and the main concert hall includes two film screens and two elevated VIP opera boxes.
Citysearchers have been impressed with (Le) Poisson Rouge’s look and feel, giving it 3.5 stars; Yelpers nearly agreed with a three-star rating: > * There is nothing else like it that i know of… anywhere. It is sophisticated, alluring, inspired…. and not to mention…. they have amazing art (Chuck Close!) – livingtheGOODlife, Citysearch > * Solely in terms of space, this is without competition the best venue I’ve been to in New York. – Thomas C., Yelp

About Le Poisson Rouge
Christened "the coolest place to hear contemporary music in New York" by the New York Times, Le Poisson Rouge has hosted everyone from Lou Reed and Patti Smith to Yo La Tengo. Though it's reputation rests on music, the self-described "multimedia art cabaret" accommodates theater, film, dance, and literary events, too. Thanks to its flexible configurations, the space can convert from a seated screening room for 250 individuals to a standing-room only concert hall for 700 people, plus700 additional people sitting on the first 700's shoulders. As each evening's show unfurls, bartenders pour top-shelf liquors while chefs craft snacks such as mushroom sliders and flatbreads topped with serrano ham. For visual art, meanwhile, head to The Gallery at LPR, an adjoining, soundproof space that's featured exhibitions by prominent artists such as Chuck Close and Ofri Cnaani.
