Wine before Babbo Saturday night

I have a 10pm dinner reservation at Babbo tomorrow (Saturday) night and am looking for a place to get a glass of wine before hand. A wine bar in the vicinity of Babbo would be preferable, or an upscale lounge where they serve good wine. We would like to be able to sit down, so if you have a recommendation that is not incredibly trendy, that would be most appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

  1. Washington Square Hotel, across the street from Babbo, has a nice little lounge that has a good wine/beer selection.

    1. Cru is a restaurant (not a wine bar), but they have a bar in front where you can order wine by the glass. They have a spectacular cellar and some of the most incredible selections you can get by the glass anywhere.
