Going to have a friends-from-college get-together sometime in the late summer or early fall and I'm looking for a local party room to rent for the occasion. I've though about Wings N More but would like something a little more upscale (and a full bar wouldn't hurt). Wish Ninfa's was still around, but I can't think of any others. Anyone have recommendations?

Caffe Capri
piano bar at Christopher's
Quarry Bar at Phillips Event Center
Downtown Uncorked - - check with Melba about your timeline. She might be fully back open by then.

Ninfa's was upscale to you?

Paolo's (2 private rooms of different sizes, full bar)
Urban Table (might be able to reserve the whole upstairs or at least a room)
Casa do Brasil (rooms can be closed off)
The Ice House downtown Bryan
Upstairs at the Stafford (not sure if you can rent it out, but wouldn't hurt to ask)
Porters (private dining room available -- not sure how many people you have in mind)

Recently went to Another Broken Egg and they have an area that can be closed off and a bar too

Kristy Petty has taken over uncorked FYI dont know if that's public knowledge yet

you could also talk to ben at parkers crossing - they have a bar and you cater the food

Quarry Bar at Phillips Event Center is a good idea. They also have a room downstairs right next to it that has golf simulators and a private bar if you hire a bartender...that can add some fun.

The art gallery Knox Train Depot station has rooms too though I think the bar is beer/wine only?

As owner, or just running the place?

The A&M hotel has a really cool private room for rent above the bar.

We had our company Christmas party there a few years back and everyone loved it.

You guys are super helpful! Urban Table and 1860 Italia are both awesome, but as a lot of people are staying at Embassy Suites, I'm thinking somewhere over near Texas/University so it's at least somewhere close is probably best logistically. Thanks for the ideas - I've got some calls to make!

Paolo's is right by where you are talking. People have mixed things to say about it in terms of dining there, but they really do a pretty good job with private events and have two differently-sized rooms that could be cool for a group.

I second the Quarry Bar. I went to a private party there, and it was very nice, and the golf simulators added some fun.

Not sure when you were at phillips, but someone told me their sisters wedding event that is still 4 months out was canceled due to freeze damage. They told them it could take a year to restore. So it may not be an option

Paolo's has done 10 or 12 private events for me in the bar over the last 3 years.
We've worked happy hour pricing, appetizers provided or ordered, meals, various scenarios.
Email Amethyst. She successfully aims to please. I am not all that easy.

I hear Phillips Event Center had extensive water damage and is closed for the foreseeable future
