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.

  1. 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.

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

      1. forgpt to say, 55 b. 5th and 6th, pretty sure.

          Divine Bar West is 54th between Broadway and 8th.

        2. The Library Bar in the Hudson Hotel. 58th street.

          1. Town is also quite nice.
