Good Late Night Bar/Restaurant for casual birthday celebration?
I'm hoping to organize something for my birthday next saturday, and I was hoping y'all could give me some advice.
I'm looking for a nice bar/restaurant/pub that'll be open late, casual, relatively quiet (conversation great, loud music no), decently lit, and will accomodate up to 20ish people with no or minimal reservations. Ideally looking on the west side, but I'm open to the Long Beach area, downtown, or anything in between those three areas. I'm not particular about the type of food, (as I'm predicting usual bar fare), but something worth a chowhounder recommendation, and a decent selection of beers.
Thanks in advance!
