  1. If you are into beer- Eulogy might be a good option.

        apologies - read "buddakhan" - thinking i was on my home board (philadelphia).

    1. i hate to state the obvious, but Budakkan does have a great bar and quite a scene especially happy hour on Fridays

      1. If not, walk over a couple of blocks to Buddha Bar.

          the bar at craftsteak is pretty cool

        2. 5 Ninth has a bar on the third floor - very loungy & cozy.
          Spice Market has a cool space but might be similar to that feel of Budakkan.

          Ono - the restaurant under the Gansevoort

          1. Ono* definitely beautiful, relaxed, upscale.

            1. Thanks, great ideas! I think we will try Ono.

              1. Passerby, on 15th, between 9th and 10th has a glowing disco-tile floor, good drinks and an artsy, fun crowd. Feels more like Chelsea than MePa.
