        is there a lounge inside bar bao, could not find the link!

        Thanks everyone.

          the room when you enter is a bar/lounge: there is a long bar w/ seats, as well as two booths and a few seats in the center...

          it has soft lighting, nice staff, a sultry vibe (especially compared to most places on the UWS), and some tasty and varied food options for snacking and/or dining...pretty much an excellent place to meet for a date...

            I agree - chic looking, downtown vibe, and nice staff with no attitude.

    1. Cafe Ronda and Calle Ocho can do standard Latin cocktails pretty well. If you want something more involved, I'd check out eightyone.
