Quiet, clubby drink

My wife and I are looking for a quiet, pleasant clubby place for a cocktail - perhaps at a hotel bar. We used to go to Mark's Bar on the UES but it and the hotel closed. Any suggestions? We'll go anywhere!

  1. TEMPLE BAR. It's like a really sexy british style club. Lafayette between 2nd and 3rd st. I believe.

        i've walked by there but have never been inside.
        what's the vibe like?

          Sophisticated brothel decor, low lighting, dark corners, classic cocktails, unobtrusive but efficient service, business-dressed crowd, all ages.

    2. Four Seasons Hotel (as opposed to the restaurant). Wonderful lounge area; a little pricey, but ...

      1. The Bentley Hotel, 62nd & York, has a quiet and nice bar/restaurant on the 21st floor. Good view as well.

        1. Bemelmans Bar is exactly what you want.

          At the Carlyle
          35 E. 76th St., New York, NY 10021
          at Madison Ave.

              Here's another vote!

              Also, the Blue Bar in the Algonquin, if you're in Midtown.
