Preface this by saying I do live in Queens so not a tourist. I know of plenty smaller places around the city for gatherings but going out for my birthday and found there are at least 15 people going out as well.

Trying to find a place that isn't upscale, more laid back/trendy but not stuck up with prices to match. Doesn't have to be cheap, but certainly not looking for 20 dollar cocktails.

Anyone have any suggestions of a larger space that fits this?

I've always been a fan of pretty much any place in The Village. I like the Peculiar Pub because they have a huge beer selection and it doesn't drain the wallet. Same with the Half Pint.


Happy Birthday!!!

Antlers during happy hour. Secretly (well, not really) run by punk rockers with an actually decently big area in back. During happy hour it's $4 on some craft beers and $5 house wines.

Arlene's Grocery is generally pretty quiet during happy hour too, $4 mix drinks and pretty cheap in general (relatively).

La Caverna is a pretty spacious bar/lounge styled like a Caribou lounge (I guess? lol) that does happy hour til 10p. $4 mixed drinks til then, something similar with beers. Probably the most spacious place I go to happy for.

I live down there so my knowledge is a bit more down there as well haha. There's other places, but these ones are generally the ones that come off the top of my head as to where to take a party of 15 people that's 'cheap'. A lot of places in the Lower East Side generally have really good happy hours. There's even a place that does $5 frozen margaritas. Sing Sing does $4 mix drinks, but unless you're getting your own room, 15 people might be pretty tight there. One place even does 25 cent wings all night long, though I keep forgetting the name.

Big kicker, if you're doing this on Monday, a lot of places have happy hour until close, which is 2a - 4a. There's also an old school jungle/drum n bass rave that happens (used to be at Leftfield, but we'll see what becomes of the place ) at the DL til 4a, but that probably won't be your scene haha.

Also, if you can convince your friends, do unlimited hotpot in Chinatown (or possibly Flushing). It's free for the birthday boy/girl! Last year I did it for lunch and dinner. I don't think I've ever eaten so much meat in my life haha.

It's been awhile, but I used to drink at The Slaughtered Lamb in The Village, I assume it's still there, and it's easily accessible from the subway. Friendly bartender, too, wehad a great time last time I went (eons ago). Nice werewolf in there, as well.

Enjoy your birthday!
