We have a group of girls who want to go out Friday night, someplace with fun drinks (less expensive a plus), good seating for a large group (we can get there relatively early to save a table), not too loud (want to hear ourselves talk), but not too quiet (because we can really talk). An outdoor area to accommodate our smokers is ideal, but given the weather forecasts, maybe not so necessary? Central village or Soho is best because we have eastsiders and westsiders, but we're willing to consider other places. Some food is good, though bar food is fine. Any suggestions?
