Where to Go for a Drink Before Yasuda

Going to Yasuda tomorrow night for dinner and I'm looking for a place to stop off before for a glass of wine or maybe a beer. I really don't want to go to the usual Irish bars in the neighborhood- is there anywhere a little nicer nearby? Maybe Riingo? Not sure how big the bar is.

  1. bull and bear (waldorf) is kind of special. campbell apartment (gct) is ok.

    1. You could try Rare View on 37th & Lex (as long as it's a bit earlier as it tends to get pretty crowded later in the evening). Great views, average beer/wine selection.

      1. We've gone to Sakagura across the street before hand - in the basement. Amazing sake selection, and the bar tender helped me find a sake that I actually enjoyed.

          O'Neals Pub on Third between 45 and 46th

            Thanks- actually planning to go to Sakagura afterwards for some drinks and their green tea creme brulee! Yum!
