Hi CH-

I'm arranging an outing for my work group:
- 20 people
- leaving office in midtown (5th ave + 53rd)
- food and drink
- a Wednesday night

Any recommendations?

I checked out Bierhaus and it was too crowded/noisy. Some people are recommending the new, big bars on 9th ave, but I'm hoping to avoid a long walk or taking the train.

Thanks for your help!

        Maybe Lounge 48 if the slick, polished vibe works for you.

          no... not going for slick/polished

          Conolly's, nearby, has an upstairs... maybe that is my backup plan
