Bang for Your Buck
80 Fifth Ave., at 14th St.; 212-727-8437
The penthouse stacks a per-head fee on top of room-rental costs, but with low starting prices (from $1,500 for the space; from $95 per person for rentals, equipment, and in-house catering) thrifty couples can still make it work, and with a seating capacity of 225 (with dancing!), bigger parties will be hard-pressed to find a better value.
