Laid Back/Quiet(ish) Bar for 30th Birthday
Hey all -- looking for recommendations on a laid back and/or quiet-ish bar where I can have a few drinks for my 30th birthday on Saturday. I've invited maybe 15-20 people (but unclear how many will actually show up) and was hoping they can just show up and grab a drink (come and go as they please type place where everyone just pays their own tab as they order).
With that in mind, I am looking for a hassle free place with a decent beer/cocktail list, nothing too fancy, or expensive. Would like to stay below midtown so that friends coming from Brooklyn and UES/UWS can meet in somewhat middle ground.
