The perfect spot would have been Blue Seats on the LES, but they are closed for remodeling in mid July.
I'd like to find a sports bar that serves food where I can reserve space for a small group (8 or fewer people) for a birthday surprise get together. It will be a mid July Friday night around 10:30 or 11 for a couple of hours. Very meat and potatoes crowd, Midtown west/theater district or EV/LES preferred. Booth or table preferred. I don't have a problem with putting down a deposit.
TIA for any help!
