Birthday spot

A few friends have a joint birthday coming up and we really want a nice spot for drinks in a lounge-type atmosphere but where we could also get dinner. Maybe something we could get to early that gets crowded later with a bar scene (we are going Saturday night)? Anywhere in Boston, Cambridge or Somerville is good. Any suggestions would be much appreciated, thanks!

    1. I suggest Eastern Standard in Kenmore Sq. It has all the things you are looking for and some of the best bartending in Boston

        You could also combine that with Hawthorne, which is more lounge-y, and/or ICOB. Citizen's or the Franklin Cafes might work. Maybe Abigail's or West Bridge or Blue Room/Belly in Kendall?
