FIrst PA System, what should I need.

I'm installing a PA system for mainly hiphop and dance music. Not sure on the room size but its expected 500-700. The room is probably going to be untreated with a low ceiling(yikes). Should I use line arrays with subs or '"monitor speakers" with subs? Also what is a good mixer for small input shows like this? What kind of mics should I have? How many cables for odds and ends. Thanks.

Do you have the dimensions of the room? What is your budget? How much of the room is for dining, sitting, conversing, the bar, etc vs dancing (how big is the dance floor)?
