SEA - Bar for birthday party?

I'm throwing my friend a birthday party in mid-December and am lookng for the right spot to hold it. Some bars we like are:
Viceroy (considering it, but it may be too small)
The Viking (again, probably too small for our group)

Looking for a place that can accommodate 15-25 people (wide age range, from mid-20s to mid-40s), not necessarily in a private room, but some sense that we are in a section (not all just standing at a bar rail).

Would like a place that serves food so I can order a bunch of apps for everyone. Not really into a super swanky scene with $14 cocktails. Ideas so far are:
The back room of Cafe Venus
King's Hardware
The upstairs room at Brouwer's

Thanks for your suggestions!

    1. I did the front half of the upstairs @ BalMar for my bday a couple ago. That was pretty fun. I think we had to disperse by 9 or 9:30 but it was on a Saturday.

      1. We had a good time at St Andrews Bar and Grill on Aurora just behind the PCC. It may not be big enough but the food was pretty good and a bewildering variety of Scotch.

        1. I admit it's been a while since I've been to either place, but I'v been to great birthday parties at both:
          -The upstairs balcony at the Chapel and
          -The backroom at SeaSound Lounge

                Yes, there's an upstairs area; I believe the bar behind Quinn's is somehow connected as well and available for private parties.
