Lounge to enjoy 20-30 friends?

I'm thinking of the Bristol Lounge in the Four Seasons to have a 30th birthday gathering with friends. I'd like to not wait in long lines like at the new hot spot Beehive, or have to pay a really high bottle service fee in order to grab a few tables. I'd really appreciate other suggestions too.

For dinner we are going to Petit Robert because I wasn't able to afford a weekend in Paris for my birthday. Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

  1. We took the upstairs balcony room at globe for a cocktail party a couple of weeks ago had great time good drinks very nice staff.

    1. I like the lounge at OM and as well as Noir in the Charles Hotel but not sure if they will be big enough for 20-30. Middlesex is fun to as well as 28 Degrees in the South End.

        Thanks for the HS suggestions, but I'd like to stay closer to the final destination. Although, as we will probably park near the common then take the T to Kenmore Sq. getting to Harvard Square isn't that much more of a challenge- it just requires changing trains.

          Foundation Lounge in Kenmore would be close by or Match on Mass Ave but that is not my fave spot.

            LIR Is a little closer to kenmore allways a fun place same owner as globe maybe a little more of a bar.

              I would second Foundation Lounge, I celebrated a 30th birthday there recently and we had a great time. I believe the host reserved a few tables for $$$, but I think a group of people could easily overtake a space without a reservation.
