Cocktails, Upper West Side

OK...have a work function near 72nd and Central park West this weekend...need a place for 15 to meet and have cocktails as close to that location as possible...any recommendations? Looking for a nice place, cocktail lounge type environment. Thanks!!!

  1. there are some decent wine bars nearby. Nothing on CPW itself, except a bunch of doctors offices and fancy apt's, but there is one on 72nd closer to Columbus that I have enjoyed called Riposo 72. might want to call for a group of 15.

    Wine and Roses is another on Columbus Ave, north of 73rd. If you want a hole in the wall bar (doesnt sound like you do, but its close to your location and the alternative to a wine bar), Malachy's pub on the north side of 72nd just west of Columbus will have that.

    As far as a "cocktail lounge" environment, as opposed to a wine bar, not a whole lot right there I can think of...

    Riposo 72
