I am looking for suggestions for a good-sized bar (capable of comfortably handling 20-30 people in our group) where it's feasible to have a non-sit-down after-work Birthday celebration over drinks and appetizers. Demographic is late 20s-mid 30s. Location can be Downtown, Govt. Center, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, South End, etc.
Mainly looking for a festive atmosphere during the after-work timeframe and the possibility of ordering food for those who want it. I know my group is fairly large so I'll call any place ahead of time and see if they can make any special accomodations for us.
Thanks in advance for your ideas!
