B-Day Bar near 5th & Union Park Slope

I'm having a b-day get together in Park Slope this Sunday afternoon (I know, I know, should have planned earlier), with maybe 30 people coming. I'd like something close to home (near 5th and Union). I am not a bar person, so I have no idea what area bars are like on Sunday afternoons. Ideal features would include: a little elbow room, decent seating, good jukebox, maybe a small food menu, and in my dream of dreams -- natural light (luminescence, not the beer). I know some people hate places like Loki and Union Hall, but are they maybe tolerable on a Sunday from 3pm-6pm? Or not so much?

  1. If you're doing it this Sunday (May 20th) be prepared for every bar on 5th to be busy since it's the annual Fifth Avenue Street Festival...yay!

    2. Bar Ries could fit the bill. It's on 5th btw 4th and 5th, I think.

        Is Bar Reis a gay bar? Not that there's anything wrong with that, but "rezelscheft" might want to know.

        I think Union Hall is a good idea.

          No. Bar Reis is a hipster bar. Ginger's (two doors down) is a lesbian bar.
