Happy hour at The Grove

I'm meeting a biz associate at The Grove for a glass of wine because it's convenient for them. Recs please?

Of course I love the Farmer's Market but that might not be appropriate. Thanks.

  1. I haven't been but there have been good reports on The Whisper Lounge here.

        Your pork pie ironic hipster style hat is probably jammed down too tightly over your ears...

          my pork pie usually goes in my mouth.

            I've hung out at the Whisper Lounge a few times, with my friend who I usually tag along with to Dan Tana's.

            It's tucked away in a corner and (only) slightly less douchey than the name would lead you to believe.

              Perhaps then the noise from the chewing of your hat is drowning out my quiet prose?

              1. re: Servorg

                your throaty, lounge-like whisper speaks volumes.

          Yes, Whisper Lounge had the right level of not quite doucheyness for business. The Italian place is a little too intense of a people scene. Morels is good too, but pricier.

        3. Hi, We always go to the Italian restaurant, La Piazza Ristorante Italiano, G90 on the map. It has happy hour wine, outdoor seating next to the fountain, so a great location and a happy hour menu. The food is v. good and the atmosphere is really festive.

          1. Morels. And maybe from their cheese and charcuterie bar a bite to eat with more than 60 farmhouse and artisanal cheeses from around the world along with handmade salamis and meats, complemented by a more than 60 wines-by-the-glass.

              1. I think a lack of a full liquor license is not a plus but if wine you are after I'd prefer the atmosphere under the big top at one of the spots in the farmers market.
