Wine Bar for Large Group
Looking for a wine bar (preferably with some small dishes but not restaurant style) for a birthday party where people can come and go but plan to have roughly 15 people in one area at a time. Any suggestions?
All neighborhoods in Manhattan are okay.

Bocca di Bacco should also be large enough to accommodate; it is not standout food, but it holds its own and would be a good atmosphere for a birthday party.

Bowery Wine Co. is huge - not necessarily the greatest selection of wine (depends on the night), but certainly affordable, plus plenty of indoor and outdoor space and small apps.

If the FiDi is a nabe you would consider, add Vintry (www.vintrynyc.com) to your list. Anyone there can help you but Ivan is the manager. It is one of the Poulakakos' family (Harry and Peter) restaurants, and they entertain groups about as well as anyone. If you decide on it, ask Harry to stop by; a real Greek (from Sparta) gentleman.
