sorry, i hate to add yet another birthday request, but i haven't seen any threads quite like what i'm looking for.
my 25th birthday is next week, and i want a sexy, fun place to get drinks with a decent-sized group - could be 12, could be 20 people. i'm not worried about dinner, just drinks and dancing.
i'm trying to find a place with a bit of everything - it would be so great to just pick one spot that would keep everyone happy. most people will want to dance at least some, but i don't want the bar to be so loud that people can't sit and have a conversation too, or at least to have another floor or area with nice seating. we're an energetic bunch that loves good beer and strong drinks, but i don't want a place that's so expensive that people won't come out.
i'm not too picky about where this place is - i've got people coming from all over, so the north end, downtown, fenway, southie, or cambridge is fine. i live in somerville, so that works too. we'll be going out next saturday night, so hopefully this fantasy spot won't make us wait in line for an hour!
thanks so much for any help you can give - i know this is a lot to ask.
