dreamstime_xxl_34859523We’ve written before about our private event spaces, and we love hearing from people who want to have their special celebration in one of them. If you have a milestone birthday coming up, or you’re in charge of planning your spouse’s, partner’s, or friend’s milestone birthday party, why not have it our Japanese restaurant? If you’re looking for the ideal party space, our Big Boy Lounge is a great choice. It’s got plenty of space for all your guests, and there’s no deposit required!

Creating Your Birthday Menu

At Moto-i, we know that not everyone you invite will have tried or prefer Japanese cuisine. Because of that, we can help you come up with a menu that will have plenty of options for everyone, and of course, we can provide fresh sake and other cocktails. The Big Boy Lounge can accommodate 90 people for a cocktail-style party, and approximately 30 for a sit-down dinner party. Depending on what you want, we’ll configure the room to perfectly meet your specifications!

No birthday party would be complete without dessert, and we have plenty of sweets to choose from that everyone will enjoy. You can pick Sata Andegi, which are Okinawan doughnuts with special five spice sugar, a banana egg roll, Sebastian Joe’s Daily Ice Cream, or a variety of mochi.

If you have a birthday coming up, or you’re planning a special event for someone in your family, contact Moto-i today to reserve the Big Boy Lounge. You can have music, food, and dancing, or just a quiet party with close friends. We look forward to speaking with you!
