ISO quiet place for drinks -- 57 St.

ellenost Mar 27, 2007 03:41 PM

I'm meeting a good friend for drinks in midtown (57 St. & Fifth) after work. I'd like some place where it's quiet (so that we can hear each other). Any suggestions? TIA :)

    Paper Moon Milano Express - 60th and Madison. Normally very quiet.

      Check out Opia...call ahead for a table. Nice atmosphere, relatively quiet (for an after-work bar) and good size drink selection. 57th betw Park and Lex.

        Another great place is the bar at The Regency Hotel on 63rd and Park. Great drinks and snacks!

        the bar at Four Seasons is usually very quiet. The crowds are very "sophisticated" ;)

          I wouldn't recommend Opia because it can get a little loud depending on how busy it is. I would say the Four Seasons bar, or Le Colonial upstairs, it is quiet there.
