we are looking for a place for 16 guests to get together for cocktails and light food. wine steals is booked but that type of idea. We are foodies on a budget and would be fine with good pub type food or even good pizza with a good atmosphere. Suggestions needed asap. Thanks!!

    Depends on time of day. I'd call Blind Lady and try to make arrangements for a group.

        Mosaic Wine Bar in North Park is similar to Wine Steals- you can buy whole bottles and only pay a $5 corkage fee which makes it a fantastic deal for a large party (and even for 2 of us). You can take any bottles that you don't finish home with you. They also have a good selection of flatbread pizzas. They will reserve a space in the back that's great for mingling- couches and high tops- if you call in advance. Or, you can get a large table by the window if it's a nice day.

          Third Corner in Ocean Beach fills the bill I believe.

            To accomodate a party of 16 you'd pretty much have to sit outside at 3rd Corner.
            But it would be great if it were warm enough.

              Been a couple months for me, but I remember a lounge area between the dining room and the patio that would accommodate 16.
