West Village drinks for first "meeting"
Blind date, so I don't want to commit to more than a drink or two to begin with. Looking for someplace in the West Village or slightly east.
Would like more of a lounge atmosphere than a restaurant...hopefully someplace with comfortable seating so we can chat and hear one another.
Nothing too noisy or crowded.
You can try Pegu Club, 77 West Houston. Definately will be quiet, especially if you get one of the tables for two by the windows.
Turks & Frogs on W 11th works well for this kind of thing. Bar and a number of wooden tables in the front room, antique couch and chairs in the back room. Never too crowded but has a nice vibe. FYI: Only beer and wine. The nibbles are good, too, in case you get hungry.
