Private room for small party- Uptown

I'm looking for a restaurant/lounge/bar for a smallish (15-20 people) 50th birthday party. I'd like a private room, but a separate area could do. I don't want something fancy. Someplace to eat and drink and have fun until late in the evening is what I'd like. I'd prefer not to have a catered type event but if I had to pay, I'm open to cost. I'd prefer to be in the Uptown area (Hillcrest, North Park, Normal Heights, Kensington, Univ Heights) but could do Little Italy, East Village, South Park or similar locations.

Does anyone have any good recommendations?

  1. I think you can reserve the back room at the Uptown Tavern on University. Not 100% sure on that, but worth a shot.

      That could be a perfect idea! Very close to my house, food, drinks, private area.

      Thanks for the idea!

    2. I have reserved the Hamms room at Blind Lady before, not sure if they still do that but it can't hurt to call.

      Down on 30th the Waypoint has a back room also that should fit 20 people.

      1. I believe Kous Kous in Hillcrest has private/semi-private spaces and would be fun for a group.

          Looks promising, but only open until 11pm, although I guess there's plenty of places to go afterwards

              From the OP:

              " ... but could do Little Italy, East Village, South Park or similar locations."

          1. Athen's Market is DOWNtown, but they are tried and true, and I believe they have a separate room for large parties.
