pls suggest a place - like employees only, but on the east side

need to find a loungy bar (for two) downtown on the east side - the closest vibe i'm thinking of would be employees only - or brandy library - but both of those places are on the west side - can anyone suggest a place? i'm stumped!

      well, there's the new lounge bar called PDT ("please don't tell"), supposedly a hidden lounge behind Crif Dogs on St Marks near 1st ave. another cozy, somewhat hidden lounge bar is Key Bar on 13th St between 1st and A.

        East Side Company on Essex and Grand or Pegu Club at Houston and W Broadway
