Best place to book a birthday party in town?

I'm organising a 21st birthday party in the next few weeks and I was wondering where in town would be the best place to book something like this? I was at something similar on the top floor of the Kasbar and it worked really well, but on their website they said it only really caters for 60+ people up there, and I'm looking for something a bit smaller than that. The middle floor of the Kasbar would be a possibility though.

Any other recommendations?

There's dj's and then there's the tool in the mansion!! He puts on the latest "now" cd and leaves it play

Any good dj can accomadate any kind of crowd! You can play current stuff for the younger crowd and then mix in abit of older stuff but still good music for the older crowd but it still keeps the younger crowd happy!

Its not as easy as it looks when you have a mixed crowd, Ok agree when he is at the bar drinking when he is getting paid to be djn, I was playing in a club in Stafford over in England last night, Was playing to a mixed crowd , was playing a few 90's tunes, normally go down well with a mixed crowd, I think Snap Rhythm Is A Dancer was playing and an 18 year old girl comes up to me and asks me to play something normal I asked her what’s normal, She said Happy Hardcore, I just laughed and turned away as the saying goes you cant keep everyone happy

Ye I know him too unfortunately. Ye his down there years, it just amazes me how he has gotting away with it for so long! I mean he puts on a cd and leaves it play out, he dont mix in songs or anything!

I asked him one night does he have any red hot chilli peppers and he said its not kervicks fruit and veg I was in! What a muppet!
