Howdy folks,

The title says it all. Seeking a nice place to get a drink (maybe a snack) for two people hovering around 40 yrs old. This will be a Tuesday evening.

Thanks for any thoughts!

      Heart of the West Village. The #1 Christopher St. subway stop has an exit there.

      Little Branch is not too far and usually quiet on Tuesdays. They open at 7pm. No food, but the cocktails are superb. I think it's cash only. You could also try the bar at Employees Only.

        Try Jeffrey - just opened right on Sheridan Square - very comfortable oyster bar/snacks/wine. It's the new sister restaurant to Joe Leonard's also on the Square

          Alta on w. 10th is a romantic tapas bar in a nice brownstone.

            Gosh, I'm really sory folks, I never thanked you! Went on the date and got sick as a dog right after (unrelated to either the bar or the date! :D ).

            Wound up going to Little Branch, which was quite nice (and no, not terribly close to Sheridan Sq.). I'll definitely try those other spots over time, though.

            Cheers,
            O
