Seeking: Nice & large lounge/pub/bar for group of 16

sylvrgirl | Jan 5, 2009 04:44 PM

A large group of approx. 16-20 of us will be meeting up for drinks for a few hours in early February, on a Saturday evening - somewhere between 6-8pm.

What I am looking for, is an ideal lounge/pub/bar.....AND the following criteria:

a) Where we don’t need reservations to linger in the bar/lounge area for a few hours…so think big and roomy.
b) Where there is live music or good music nothing too quiet
c) Where parking is not a hassle and easy enough to find
d) And lastly, where a diverse crowd and age range won’t feel out of place (30-70 year-olds)

I've looked at many recommendations and have this on my shortlist:
a) Li’Ly Lounge
b) Brant House
c) Vivoli
d) Distillery District - Mill St Brew Pub only option, all others doing Winterlicious
e) A Salsa Lounge, like Lula or El Rancho. Never been to either though!
f) Brazen Head Pub
g) Forte Bistro
h) The Bier Markt (The Esplanade)

Will any of these fit the spot? Where would you go?

Thanks for everyone's help, in advance!
