Last time you and six friends wanted to go out, you went to and immediately left three different tiny bars before giving up. Next time, head to Ormsby’s. This spot on the Westside was made for big groups, whether it’s a Happy Hour with coworkers or a bunch of people looking for late-night drinks after dinner at Miller Union. There’s a big bar upstairs with plenty of tables to sit and drink, while downstairs there’s an equally large bar where you can play things like bocce or darts.
