Looking for a nice place for drinks tomorrow evening. Preferably in the 50's - 5th or 6th Avenue. Prefer tables to sit and not the typical bar scene.

    Brasserie Ruhlmann is my go-to spot in the 50's. It's right in Rock Center. It has a bar but also has a bar area with tables. I love the food (best braised ribs) but I often go just to have a drink since I work close by.

      Great cocktails @ Divine Bar West--be sure to sit upstairs (that may require eating though) but there are banquettes downstairs. GREAT cocktails
