Harp & Crown is expensive and it definitely isn’t your go-to for a casual night out with a few people. It is, however, the ideal place to have a sort-of-pricey birthday dinner for yourself and 25 of your closest friends. Beneath the main dining room, they have a large private room and two bowling lanes that you can rent out. So if you said you were going to “keep it small” this year, but then remembered how much you love being the center of attention, this is a good option.
