Serpico bar?

Anyone know if it is possible or what the odds might be for a solo diner to get a seat at the bar for just a cocktail and appetizer on a Monday night? Thanks

    Was there last night Monday, bar remained open the entire time we were there, 7-9:30

      Probably good- It only has about 4 seats, but that works in your favor. People usually only sit there if their table isnt ready (in my experience), and Mondays are usually pretty quiet across the board.

        Only 5 seats, and if you go early (for example, 6ish on a recent Thursday), it will probably be empty. Once the restaurant is packed by 8:30PM (again on a Thursday), it will be difficult. Can't say about Monday. And I'm not sure if they will serve appetizers at the bar. BTW, house cocktail list only has about 6 drinks on it, and there are not formal appetizers on the menu, but it does progress from smaller to larger as you move down the list.
