Getting 40 people into a downtown bar at happy hour will be exciting
no matter what. But here are some suggestions...

Fairly close to the Max train and Pioneer Square (city center)...


Red Star and Hubers are fairly nice. Tugboat has perhaps a bit less
space and is a bit, well, "grungier".

A bit further but perhaps roomier...

Lucky Labrador Beer Hall (1945 NW Quimby)
* The Max train and then streetcar would get us fairly close to this location.

Another option may be the bar at a downtown hotel, which may not fill
up as much as these.

The Heathman has a reasonably sizable two-floor lounge, but can fill up...


I've also been in the Westin a couple of times and recall it is fairly roomy...
