Cocktails in Chelsea

Need some cocktail advice. My husband and I, who are in our early 30s and live in the city, are meeting a coworker and his wife for dinner in Chelsea on Saturday. I think dinner will be at La Promenade des Anglais. They're coming in from NJ, so I'd like to make the trip worth their while and show them a nice time with some pre-dinner cocktails. Where can I do this that will still let us walk (up to ten minutes) to get to the restaurant? Please don't say something like the Half King- we're looking for something a little classier/more intimate. I can't come up with anything good in the area!

La Promenade des Anglais
461 W 23rd St, New York, NY 10011

  1. If you really want to do more classy/intimate, perhaps the bar at Del Posto? It's on the expensive side, though.

    Another option might be the bar at the Tap Room at Colicchio & Sons.

    Del Posto
    85 10th Avenue, New York, NY 10011

    1. The Bar at the Maritime Hotel. Not a mixologiy destination but a pleasant, hip room with good drinks.
