Baltimore bar/restaurant for large group

Perhaps I'm attempting to do the impossible. I'm searching for a bar/restaurant in Baltimore that
a) is casual,
b)won't be super crowded on a Friday night,
b) can handle a group of 15-20, and
c) won't care if some people just come for drinks and not food.

Its for a surprise birthday get-together which I can't host a home because we're rehabbing the house. Thanks for your help!

  1. hmmmm...maybe Bartenders? or Mick O'Shea's. Both have separate areas you can reserve I think.

      Where is Bartenders and whats it like?

    2. Does it have to be in Baltimore City? You might have better luck in the surrounding counties - or book a few weeks in advance.

      1. I went to a similar size party on a Saturday night at Red Star in Fells Point. They were very accomodating and we had a great time.

          About Red Star - I inquired yesterday and they said that they didn't do large groups like that anymore. Was your party downstairs in the main restaurant, or upstairs in the private room?

        2. Hull Street Blues in South B'more off Fort Ave, might fit your needs.
          Also give Vinnie's on Holabird Ave near Dundalk som e consideration.

          1. Off the top of my head, places with private rooms include Birches, Copra, and Bartenders; don't know what their reservation policies are.

            Huckas is huge. Food can be decent.

            For a more restaurant-feel, I'd call True (Admiral Fell Inn) too.
