Drinks after a show this weekend

First of all thank you to everyone who posts here, I have been reading this board a lot and have gotten a ton of good info.

My two sisters and I are coming into the city tomorrow and staying overnight at the Westin Times Square. We are going in to see Promises Promises.

We have lunch, dinner and brunch for Sunday all set. Choosing was difficult because when I say they are the world's pickiest eaters, I am not kidding. One doesn't eat italian, which pretty much rules out half the restaurants, pizza, burgers, the other doesn't like steak, neither really eat veggies and they both consider black pepper an exotic spice.

My brother and I on the other hand have a terrible time deciding where and what to eat as there so many choices all of which I'd eat. I think we must have come from differant parents.

Anyway, looking for a few differant places to stop for drinks after the show which is on Broadway between 52nd and 53rd.

We don't mind walking a bit. We are looking for a couple of "swanky" places and maybe a couple of lower end places too. One of the places I thought might be fun is the bar at the top of the Peninsula Hotel.

We are in our late 40's and early 50's but do like to have fun.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  1. we're not really supposed to talk about nightlife here, but here's at least one suggestion...

    check out 'disiac on 54th just west of 9th ave. they have a nice garden, reasonably priced drinks and a generally mature, but not old, crowd.

    also on 52nd at 8th ave, you can find two russian vodka bars. i prefer the one on the north side of the street.

    1. About 6 blocks north, Stone Rose in the Time Warner Center. Sort of an upscale mall (granted one of the best restaurants in the world, per se, is in that mall) Older crowd, Great view of Central Park.

        Sorry, didn't realize I shouldn't have posted that question here.

        But thank you for the suggestions, I'll take a look at them.

          Chow Gal is right to mention Stone Rose. i often bring visitors there to see the park at night. if you go and it's before 9pm, stop on the 3rd floor to get a Thomas Keller Oreo at Bouchon. they're worth the trip alone.
