    How about one of the bars at the Merritime Hotel, directly across the street from Buddakan.

      A shot in the dark, but you can try to get a reservation perhaps at the Top of the Standard (18th floor, formerly known as the Boom Boom Room, closed to the public at 10pm).

      BTW, it's the Maritime Hotel (not Merritime, for people searching) that has a bar or two right by Buddakan, but it's not really known for having great views. I've been to the "Cabana" room there and it's OK.

        My recommendation would be 675 Bar. It's pretty close to Buddakan, and it's an underground location, with a really cool, adult rec room vibe. Not divy at all. Lots of exposed brick, mood lighting, and fun little alcoves.
