I'm throwing a (potentially awkward) party for about 20 people in my apartment. Mostly couples. Need advice.

My apartment is not so big so 20 people will feel a bit crowded. Most of the couples know each other, some don't and at least two hate each other's guts. The only thing these couples have in common is that they know me. What can I encourage beyond eating and drinking to help ease the awkwardness and help people get on chatting and mingling?
I have a beamer in the living room. Should I beam something? a movie? music videos? ideas are welcome.
I will serve cocktail food and there will be beer and a cocktail station where my husband will mix drinks.
I thought of some board game, but I don't know (my husband hates parties where games are organized by the hosts) what could be appropriate and less awkward.
If you've recently been to a party and there was something great that "made" the party, please let me know.
