At a Loss ... Need *novel* recs for a 12 person gathering please!

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to gather some people together next Thursday for a group birthday celebration.

These are the hopeful criteria:

No sit down dinner, not everyone will arrive at the same time
Good for groups
Bar/lounge area
Bar tables (possibly to be reserved)
Conducive to mingling
Good food
Good Drinks
Bar menu would be great

Some obvious places come to mind like Gaslight, Beehive, Union, Stella, Scampo, etc. but I am looking for a different place, something I may be missing. Not really interested in the Living Room's food. Here are some thoughts I had, but I either haven't been or don't know about the bar area.

Estragon - don't know anything about.
Rocca - ditto.
Banq - good bar area, think they'd reserve a group of bar tables?
Sage - pretty good bar menu, what's the bar area like?
Stella - what's the bar area like?

Any other suggestions? Many thanks!
