35th Bday Party Bar Rec?

secondbecky | Oct 3, 2013 06:37 AM

Please forgive if this is a bit off topic, as it's related to bars in Manhattan and not restaurants or food per se. It's the first time I'm having a bday party in years and I've been out of the loop of restaurants and bars for a few years now, so I have no idea what would be a good idea. Any suggestions for a good bar (it doesn't necessarily have to serve food, but small plates might be nice just in case)?

Most of my friends are in their late 20s early 30s. I honestly have no idea how many people are going to show, so I'd need a place that we wouldn't need reservations and that wouldn't be hard to get into. I don't care if it's high class cocktails or more of a low key beer joint, but I'm not looking for a dive-y place or a theme joint. I'd prefer downtown (just cuz I live in Bk), the furthest north I'd like to go is probably Chelsea.

Is that enough info? Thanks in advance!
