Drinks in downtown Rochester

I'd like to find a nice bar to have drinks (say, before dinner) in downtown Rochester. I want someplace for adults - not a loud 20 something gang (not Daisy Dukes or Milestones for instance). Also not scummy like Old Toad, but still casual.

Sorry to be so fussy!

I know a lot of restaurants but always draw a blank when it comes to drinks and maybe bar snacks.Thanks for any suggestions.

  1. There is a new wine bar on South Avenue worth trying. 2Vine - very expensive. There are also places with an "older" crowd in Pittsford - specifically I'm thinking of a restaurant/bar called JoJo's in the village across the street from the hotel/spa there. Finally, the Pomodoro Grill on University. Cibon on Park has good drinks - it's not exactly a bar - more of a cafe but has an interesting feel to it - the drinks are quite expensive for Rochester.
