Where should I have my 30th birthday party?

I'm turning 30 in a month and I want to do it right.

At first I was thinking "private room in a swanky place, y'all!" but I quickly realized that was ludicrous given that I am not yet a billionaire. However, I still want to do drinks and snacks somewhere cool with about 10 friends.

So here are my criteria:

- Somewhere with good food and drink, but emphasis definitely more on the drink

- Lounge atmosphere, and huge bonus points if we can reserve a cool table or section without shelling out an arm and a leg

- Fun and reasonably hip

Right now I'm trying to look into the options at Edison (never been there, but it seems cool); I've already nixed Blue on Blue and Viceroy as their requirements for reserving a cabana are way too stringent.

What I don't want: big table at a traditional restaurant. I want it to be more of a party than a meal.

Suggestions would be hugely appreciated!
