Drinks before Crispo tonight?

Any advice on where my husband and our friends can have a drink before we hit up Crispo tonight? We'd like to stay in the area right around the restaurant - 14th street between 7th and 8th Avenues - because it's supposed to rain. Any thoughts on some nice cocktails would be appreciated. Thanks!

  1. I've asked the same question before and after walking around the hood called my friends and told them to just meet me at the Crisp bar. Both times I've been there the bartenders have been very friendly and I was lucky to snag enough seats for my friends too.

    1. perhaps the bar at scarpetta on 14th and 9th?

      or park bar on 15th between 5th and union sq west...always solid...shouldnt be totally crowded before dinner.

      1. I love the bar (and bartenders) at Cafe Loup, 13th between 6th and 7th. It's got a very neighborhood-y and comfortable vibe, plus they make a great cocktail.
