Need nice place for a drink near City Hall

  • 2

Hi everyone,

We are getting married at City Hall Friday am. We just found out some friends are flying in from Chicago for the wedding, but need to catch a flight to JFK at 3pm, so not much time. Is there a nice place to get some champagne & a little something quickly after the ceremony that is close by?

Thanks for any suggestions.

  1. Nearby is City Hall restaurant, a little further is Odeon, and a little further ( maybe 8 blocks) is Tribeca Grill or Locanda Verde. Another idea is the The Smyth Hotel on Chambers and W. Broadway. They have a nice bar and restaurant is called Plein Sud ( probably the best choice). Another idea is to go over the Brooklyn Bridge to River Cafe (10 minutes away) for a spectacular view, great food and champagne. Congratulations.

    1. We went here after our wedding (we also got free champagne!). Food is very good too.
