Need a restaurant for a "boys night out"

Having dinner with 11 high school friends next month and trying to find a restaurant that is both suitable for 11 guys and heavy boozing as well as a fun venue. Any and all suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

      Open to any area of Manhattan. We also like to get loud and have a great time, if that helps.

        Tortilla Flats may work for you all...TONS of booze, rowdy atmosphere and a plethora of pretty young things:

          You might want to have a look at yesterday's thread on bachelorette parties :-)...

      2. There's always Robert's Steakhouse. Or if you want more steak and less ... of the other thing... Lugers, Wolfgangs, or Quality Meats are all very good for large groups of loud guys.

        For non-steakhouses check out: Acme bar in the village, Zum Schnider in the EV.

        Although If I could make one suggestion... have some options and make a reservation, but don't over-prepare. The best nights out are those that evolve organically.

          True. A lot of the best nights out just start at Ulysses and devolve from there.

        2. I know many of my guy friends (for bdays, bachelor parties) go to Churrascaria Plataforma for Brazilian meats and lots of drinking.

          1. Hit up Hill Country. Food is great, huge tables, you can be loud and rowdy, live music downstairs of you like. All the ingredients for a good night out.
