I'm looking for a place to do my 24th birthday for 5-7 people. Somewhere semi-trendy and a place where we can stay and drink the night away. Previous birthdays have been held at J Lounge, Geisha House.
food type: american, steakhouse, french, italian, japanese, chinese, maybe even mexican.
also willing to consider a restaurant and a nearby bar.
location: pasadena, hollywood, downtown la, beverly hills (don't really want to go to westwood or santa monica).
budget is probably 40$ for a plate (drinks not included).
