First date suggestions: E 50s and 60s
Looking for suggestions for a first date in the East 50s or 60s. This is a "drinks" date, so a place with drinks that maybe also had some bar bites/tapas/etc., would be perfect. Cocktails and wine preferred over beer.
I agree with Le Colonial upstairs. Sooo many places in that area... You can also go to Opia or to Merchants downstairs. David Burke Townhouse has a nice bar area and you can go next door to Brio for dinner.

You might consider the Monkey Bar, 60 E 54th St in the Elysee Hotel. Www.monkeybarnewyork.com. It's a classic New York place from the 40s/50s that has been recently updated. Bar plus full restaurant. Cozy, clubby and retro cool decor. Vanity Fair hot spot.
