before and after dinner at buddakan
A group of about 20 of us have dinner reservations at Buddakan at 9:30 pm next monday ... I was hoping someone would have some good suggestions of where we could get drinks beforehand and of clubs / lounges we could go to after. The only request I would have is that anywhere we go be within walking distance of Buddakan (5-10 minute walk) ... some suggestions I have received from friends are:
Gansevoort or One for predinner drinks
Tenjune / Pink Elephant / Marquee for after dinner.
Maybe not so helpful, but Buddakan's own bar always has a pretty big scene going. If you want outdoor, there's always the Maritime Hotel's various offerings (La Bottega being the outdoor cafe/bar, or the cabana place up the stairs).
Out of those three clubs, I believe Tenjune is probably the most popular currently, but I'm no expert on Monday night clubbing anymore...
