Bunch of people (20) coming to town for our wedding - want something casual and divey the night before. Wedding dinner at Commanders. What's the opposite?

Looking at Coop's or Port of Call - what do you think? Other suggestions please.

Thanks!

      Thanks. It looks great, but we're a little worried about size. Do you think 20 people can get in there at once?

      1. re: evoo

        They have an upstairs room....just be forewarned, if anyone in your group is easily offended, this is NOT the place for you!

        1. re: betheroo

          It would take a lot to offend this group. Thanks for the suggestion!!!

    2. Felipe's in the Qtr.. maybe an upstairs room could accommodate.

      1. Adolfo's on Frenchman.

          I like Adolfo's, but I would think it would be difficult to get reservations for a group of 20 since the place only holds something like 36 people. Can the Apple Barrel downstairs where you have to wait to get in Adolfo's hold 20 people? It is a cool dive bar with good live music but is very cramped. I also like Coop's but it is small also and may be hard to get 20 people in. Good luck in finding a place.

            Thanks for the Rec - Adolfo's could be perfect. Appreciate it!

              POC over Yo Mama's. Not a fan of Adolpho's.

        2. See what Napoleon House would do upstairs

            I think Napoleon House is a good suggestion.

              I think Napoleon House has a 50 person minimum for upstairs.

          2. buffas on esplanade has a large room/space outside the main bar area. i have to admit their burger is pretty darn tasty. i only stumbled upon eating there after POC said they could not do TOGO orders....Buffa's burger is a huge, cheesy, greasy, hot, delicious mess!!!!

            1. Curious where y'all ended up...just ran across this post. Hope it went well!
