craftbar/accademia di vino/or soho grand for bday dinner??help!

Hi, because i am eternally indecisive i have 3 reservations for my 25th birthday this saturday night!. We will be a group of 10 people. I would like something fun where we can linger for a while and have some good cocktails. I dont want people to pay a fortune, but i know these arent "cheap" which is fine. Only chose Grand Bar and Lounge at soho grand because i figured we could order small plates etc throughout the night and also invite others to join us after dinner and stay at the bar for a while, but i havent heard anything good about the food there.

What do you all think? thanks!

  1. Have only been to Craftbar out of that group. It can be hit or miss, but it is a fun atmosphere.

    1. Food at accademia is incredible and the atmosphere is nice..its a fun place as well. You can start with cocktails at the bar upstairs and then head for dinner down stairs in the wine cellar. wont bve dissapointed!
