I'm up from LA on Friday 4 May and looking for a good place to meet a colleague and a client (latter unknown) for a drink at 5 pm downtown. Would also appreciate segue to dinner ideas, with or without one or both other parties. Am likely to be staying at the Palomar. Is Gary Danko a drink option?
The Fifth Floor is in the Palomar and would be ideal for a business dinner... As far as drinks go - I would send you to The Redwood Room in the Clift Hotel,unfortunately Ian Schraeger of Mondrian fame is renovating it. Another great place for cocktails is atop the B of A building - great view (expensive drinks) a good place to take clients.
