Venue for 40th Birthday party?

Hi all!
I'm planning a 40th birthday party for my husband and looking for some suggestions. I'd like it to be a bar setting with ideally a separate space that we could reserve. Finger foods would be great but not a deal breaker. Good music (not top 40) and decent crowd would be more important. We'd prefer it to be on the eastside (Los Feliz, Silverlake, Echo Park area) but we're flexible. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks so much!

    1. re: yogachik

      I bet they'd be willing to work with you on a menu for your group as well.

    2. The back patio at Edendale would be perfect. Wouldn't recommend the food, however.

      1. If you are wiling to go a bit further west, Eveleigh on Sunset would be a great choice. Music is very good. Lively bar and good interesting menu. There are sections that could probably be reserved and a retractable roof if its a nice night.

        1. Cliff's Edge?
          Or the place in the back of (what used to be) Vermont? (can't remember the name...but the old Vermont is now a supper club. And the back is a bar/restaurant with small plates.)

          1. Can you reserve the patio at Wood and Vine?

            Went once a few wks ago. There's definitely a bar, the crowd was relatively mature (mature enough that I can't imagine them playing top 40), and the food was pretty good. Also very close to the Red Line (I think), in case that matters....
