I'm looking for a restaurant/lounge/bar for a smallish (15-20 people) 50th birthday party. I'd like a private room, but a separate area could do. I don't want something fancy. Someplace to eat and drink and have fun until late in the evening is what I'd like. I'd prefer not to have a catered type event but if I had to pay, I'm open to cost. I'd prefer to be in the Uptown area (Hillcrest, North Park, Normal Heights, Kensington, Univ Heights) but could do Little Italy, East Village, South Park or similar locations.
Does anyone have any good recommendations?
