Birthday Bar for Drinks Only - 30th Bday

Am looking for a fun bar downtown (east or west) to celebrate a 30th birthday. There will probably be about 25 of us. We can do dive or lounge - but are not clubbers. Looking for something that we don't have to rent out and can just show up with a little wiggle room after dinner (like 10:30 or 11:00). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

  1. white rabbit on houston might fit your bill

    1. Is this for a weeknight or a weekend? Verlaine is a possibility, although it might be packed at 10:30.

      And a couple weeks ago I went to an event at The Doghouse Saloon on Orchard. It used to be The Annex, a pretty nice club. Now it is a dive, and not even a cool one. Which is sad for me, but maybe good for you. It was nearly deserted at 10pm on a Thursday, so I think you'll all fit.

      1. Royale on Ace c and 9th. The backyard is open and you wont be cramped.

        157 Ave C, New York, NY 10009

        1. I went to a 29th birthday recently at Pravda in SoHo and it was a lot of fun.
