i am in a bit of a bind - my birthday is this weekend, and i'll be meeting a group of 10-15 people out for drinks. i have no idea where to start. i am looking for a place that is NOT uber-hip, that is not overly crowded so we can hang out at as a group. here are a few suggestions i've received from friends so far -- please let me know if you have other ideas (or comments on these places). thanks!
B-side -- Ave B between 12th and 13th
People -- Allen street between stanton and rivington
Luna Lounge: on Ludlow
Max Fish: on Ludlow
Ace Bar: on 5th b/t A and B
Croxley's Ale house -- Ave B
