Help a nerd find a really cool restaurant bar in the Village/Soho-ish

Friends are visiting NYC from Rome and they want to meet us for drinks on Sunday late afternoon somewhere in Manhattan. I used to know the scene, but now I have two kids and live in Brooklyn so I am largely out of the loop. I'm looking for a bar that has great drinks and a good atmosphere/scene. Extra points for trendy but not in an annoying way, if that makes sense. I put Village/Soho in the title to narrow it down a bit, but actually we're flexible on the neighborhood.

  1. If you don't mind the potential for bad service, I'd recommend The Standard Grill. Grab a table al fresco and enjoy the day...I hear the weather's supposed to be nice.
    Another spot that may work is Cafe Gitane.

        We went to Freeman's for drinks on your suggestion and LOVED it. Perfect suggestion. Thanks so much!

      2. I don't know how late in the afternoon you'll be drinking but Tailor will be open at 5. They have a great bar program, can't vouch for the scene that early on a Sunday.
