Need a good place to grab a quick drink after work with a friend. Super hip not required just a decent place and not too loud. Thanks.

    How about the tapas bar (Ole, I think)? I see lots of people there for happy hour.

      Firefly on Ventura at Colfax. Very cool, warm atmosphere for drinks, and the food is actually quite tasty.

        Firefly is a good choice or just a couple storefronts west of there is Next Door Tapas. It's connected to La Loggia Italian restaurant. Much better and calmer than Ole'. Very comfortable. There is also Sapphire, also right in that same vicinity. The other option would be to go sit at the bar at Pinot Bistro near Coldwater on Ventura.

          The bar at Cafe Cordiale, just east of Hazeltine on Ventura Blvd. is very pleasant.
