Sat. night Drinks / Nosh
any suggestions for cocktails and a nosh on Sat. night? Am looking for an older quieter experience. price not determinative. part of town - well arriving in Penn about 9:00 - but could catch train to village or walk around midtown. Would like to stay clear of young "scene" places. To provide example of what I'm searching for - I like the bar at the Modern (love it actually) just not on a Sat. night at 9:00. Have been meaning to try the bar at the Palace - again, not sure of the crowd and noise level though - my partner is hearing impaired so we prefer quieter. thanks for any suggestions.
hotel and restaurant bars are generally good places to find older, quieter co-diners/drinkers. saturdays are hard, but 9pm should not be as bad as, say, 11pm. If you are really willing to hop a train or cab, and money is not an object - what about the bar at Gramercy Tavern or the bar at Gotham?
