Hi all,

Ok, I need some advice...

My birthday is mid-December. I want to do my birthday party in a bar/lounge type place.

Last year, I did it at The Skinny, on Orchard Street, and it was perfect. It was before the place got popular (it was shortly after it opened, I think, actually), and we were allowed to block off a section without having to rent it (ie: pay, lol), and the drinks were cheap.

I'd like a similiar situation this year -- a bar/lounge type place, where it's cool, but not too popular (I'd like to do it on a Saturday night, and I don't want it to be so crowded that it defeats the purpose of us all being together). Inexpensive is important, a lot of my friends are musicians or students, so no one has a lot of money to throw around. Definetly not a club or venue, something sorta fun like a hookah lounge or juke box/arcade type thing would be ok though, but I'm totally not against a really funky dive bar.

As for location, I live in Brooklyn, but tend to hang out in the lower east side of manhattan a lot. I would want to do it either on the lower east side or east village (or maybe soho or tribeca area if there was something cool)...OR, I was considering doing it in Brooklyn, but if there, in Park Slope -- that's easy to commute to from both the city and within Brooklyn, so it's ideal for a cross-section of my friends.

I was actually considering the Tea Lounge in Park Slope, I know it's more of a coffee/wine/beer place than a bar, but I love the atmosphere there so much. But, I know that place gets super crowded, so if I was to have a group of about 20-25 people there, there's no way that would work out...but maybe if someone knows something LIKE that, it'd be an option?

I know I'm throwing way too many thoughts out there...that's why i'm so in need of advice :)

My only suggestion is Karma on the lower east side. You should see if you can reserve tables, though, cause it can get wicked crowded.
