Most likely, you have several options. There may be several ways to organize your group. I am not sure if you have to open a bar to accomplish your goals. I do not think it would be worth opening a bar for only 150 people. There should not be a problem closing your bar or any bar for a private party. Obviously, as long as nothing your club does breaks any laws you should be fine.
Your question really can't be answered in a public forum like this. Your situation is fact-specific and you need to talk to a local business attorney knowledgeable about ordinances in your area. Do this before you proceed further. Not having an attorney advise you before you begin, so you avoid mistakes, can be much more costly than the price of a consultation.
