Ideas for Large Group Birthday Party? (Los Angeles, Westside, Santa Monica, Culver City)

Hey gang,

My 25th birthday is this Sunday and I was trying to lock down an option today on where we should go. Here are some of the things I'm looking for:

- Can accommodate a lot of people (25-30) - I don't need everyone sitting at a long table, getting up and mingling and mixing is what I'm hoping for.
- Not a sit down dinner. Don't want a huge bill at the end, but want my guests to have the option of ordering on their own.
- Not impossible to find parking
- Full liquor license
- Good music / dancing friendly / fun / lively!

Some ideas I had so far:

Wurstkuche, Venice
Rush Street, Culver
Steingarten LA, West L.A.
BRU Haus, Brentwood
Henry's Hat, Universal City

Rush Street
9546 Washington Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232

Henry's Hat American Pub and Sports Bar
3413 Cahuenga Blvd West, Los Angeles, CA 90068

Steingarten LA
10543 W Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90064

  1. I went to a Xmas party at Waterloo & City. Huge room, communal tables, great menu, fun atmosphere, plenty of parking.
    Hits all your requests except I think it's beer and wine only and not sure about any dancing...

    1. Sunny Spot, The Yard, Renee's Courtyard all come to mind, all in SM
