Good Bar/Restaurant for groups of 10-20?

HI everyone


I am moving soon and wanted to organize a get together somewhere in Basel before I go with friends for drinks and finger food/appetizer dishes. Im thinking maybe 10-20 ppl.


I have been to events like this before (going away parties, birthdays etc). The ones i recall were in Bar Rouge and Eo ispo. I didnt particularly like Bar rouge as there is not good seating for that size group and the music was too loud to have conversations. Eo Ispo had great drinks, ok food and a bigger space, but their service was not very attentive/responsive. Others and myself personally waited 20+ minutes just to get the waiters attention to come to take drink orders....


I was wondering if anyone had a reccomendation of a good place in Basel, which has good drinks, decent/afforable shared appetizer plates, can serve drinks in a timely fashion and provide comfortable seating for 10-20 ppl. I understand thats a lot to ask for, so any recommendation would be appreicated.


Thanks!

Hi cb07,

This is my first post here but I've been reading these forums for a while.

I am not too familiar with Basel yet, but I've been a few times and I've checked out quite a few different places. I'd recommend Flanagan's Irish Pub at Picassoplatz 8.
They have a really nice menu with Irish and international dishes and the staff are friendly and efficient. They have a nice big terrace too. I haven't been there with a large group, but I'm sure they could arrange suitable seating if you phone ahead.
Let me know how it goes.

All the best,
Chris

I've been there when they've put a couple of tables together outside for about 10 people. It'd been empty before people arrived, so I guess it'd been reserved.

Really great places (restaurants) to go with friends:
- zum Alten Loewen
- gartenhof
Very fresh food and saisonal menu. Hint: A very short and saisonal card indicates often a qualitative restaurant.
Great team as well there.

Enjoy!
