Hi Chowhounds! I need help.
I'm looking for a place for 10-15 people to meet at for my birthday this year, somewhere with a good selection of beer on tap, some snacks (preferably tasty ones) for those who want it, not sceney, and ideally a pool table and some couches to sit on. In the best of worlds, it would be accessible from West Harlem (so on the A, 1, FV, L, any of those).
Only problem is my birthday is on a Saturday this year, and any place that I was thinking about (Blind Tiger, dba) seem like they would be packed on a Saturday night. I want something laid back and cozy, not crowded and sweaty. Dive bars are great, if they have enough room to hang out comfortably.
Any suggestions for a good beer place that doesn't get too crowded? Thanks!
