looking for nice bars, spots for drinks heading west on 23rd St.

Will be taking subway from UES down to 23rd St. and will be walking west towards 8th Ave.
Are there any nice bar stops on the way? Or a good destination bar?
This is for cocktails before late dinner in Chelsea.

  1. Nuela, on 24th just east of 6th, has a nice bar with Latin-themed drinks. Markt, on 21st and 6th, has an awesome Belgian beer selection.

    1. If you can go a little bit south, I'd stop in at the Flatiron Lounge. Rye House is another option -- much more casual/lively. There's also Raines Law Room, which I've not been to but heard good things about. Maybe the bar at Eleven Madison Park if you're dressed up a little bit.

        Raines Law Room is a really nice spot- and very unusual. However, I wouldn't recommend it if you have a large party.
