We schedule our after party for a tech conference here and rented out the patio for our expected 100 people. The venue was easy to work with prior to our event and very reasonably up-sold us to including a taco for everyone rather than just drink tickets. The tacos were delicious (even served in bulk) and were a smashing hit.
We were also able to use our own tokens as drink tickets - the bar staff was great about being accommodating to our extra needs like this.
Additionally (and this is really what made the experience for us), we had less people show up than expected, so we didn't order nearly as many drinks as expected. Rather than just flat rating our event even though we didn't "use" our entire tab (as we've experienced before), our servers and the management on duty opened up their entire drink menu rather than just the set drink menu AND entertained our guests long after our official event time was over, all on our tab (even after we'd tabbed out and left). While I'm guessing they still made a fair bit of extra cash from our event (compared to the drinks they expected to serve), they also made a great impression on us as the organizers AND on our attendees.
I would highly recommend Cochino for large group gatherings (if the weather is patio friendly) and love the care and attention / good will the staff extends to their guests. We'll definitely be back.
