Restaurant that accommodates large groups for birthday dinner

I'm looking for a restaurant that would be able to accommodate a large group (without having to book a separate room) that hopefully is good for drinks and small plates--not a nice sit down place but where people would be able to mingle? Thanks!

      Maybe 15-20, probably with people coming and going...

    2. Upstairs of the Thirsty Bear. Take over two of the pool tables and enjoy their small plates!

      1. I feel like a broken record sometimes - but check out La Mar Cebicheria. Small plates, cocktails, large for SF space.

          Whoops! I should mention I'm looking for somewhere in Berkeley or Oakland…but I'll check these places out! Thanks : )

            Bocanova's so huge they might be happy to accommodate.

            The bar at Tribune Tavern might work if you could get there early enough to commandeer a big table.
