WHAT IS A GOOD BAR AT WHICH TO CONGREGATE FOR MY BIRTHDAY? PLEASE SUGGEST

Looking to find time to say, hey friends, come to this place on a weekend night, a place which is convenient to most parties and peoples. Was thinking Hollywood or thereabouts? Not too crowded, not too shitty, good for a gathering without needing to do much reserving. You are all invited, of course
  1. Harvard and stone
    Most suggested one. Figure it's pretty good for friends who come from the valley and a nice big space but maybe it gets a little overwrought on the weekends?
