Chelsea - far west side

Hi all - I just started working way over by the Hudson river, on 26th and 12th. I've been out a couple times looking for an after work spot with good drinks and some decent bar food / appetizers. Does anyone have a recommendation in this area? I'm thinking between 20th-30th streets, no further east than 8th ave. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Agree that Co. is a good option.

    Also, check out Trestle on Tenth,. Good food and a lovely little garden.

        spanish/basque food in excellent in your area. i love el quinto pino (tapas and drinks). many others rave about tia pol and txikito socarrat (paella bar), when good, is very good indeed. i think apart from tia pol they all don't take reservations. but if you walk around the area it's perfect. just hit them before 7pm

        you may have to walk just a few steps beyond 8av though
