Bar recommendations near CRAFT?

My beautiful wife is taking me to CRAFT for my birthday. We would like to chill with a couple of drinks before our 8:00 dinner. Any suggestions of a good spot within walking distance? She doesn't drink beer so need something with wine or cocktails. Thanks.

      This. They have an awesome cocktail list and the bartenders are top-notch. If Sean is there, hand him the reins and you will be more than impressed.

      Rains Law Room is also a good choice, but there will likely be a wait, depending on day and time. I have twice given up on the wait and simply walked over to the bar at Craft.

        Sean is great.

      2nd Raines Law Room & Flatiron Lounge. Raines, especially, if you can go early, and grab one of the private, curtained off booths for 2.
