      Hello Kathryn, It can be really anywhere in Manhattan since we all work in different areas.
      We are 5 people
      Atmosphere? upscale /modern classy, thirty something/early forties crowd.

      1. re: Lovelyday

        The bar at Eleven Madison Park would be good. Very classy, great bar snacks.

    2. Terroir, unless you are looking for cocktails. Also, the bar at Robert is pretty cool. Very feminine room and great view of Central Park. Museum of Art and Design on the lower floors is pay what you wish on Thursdays after six.

        Hi Coasts I found 4 Terroirs which one are you talking about and what are the days to go?

        1. re: Lovelyday

          Depends on your location, really. East Village is small. TriBeCa is excellent any day of the week.

          1. re: coasts

            Can you name a few places in TriBeCa? :)

          2. re: Lovelyday

            Best terrior is definately tribeca, larger space and good seating choices. If you go on a mon-wed the smaller original location in e village is also great just smaller. On thurs-wknd can get very busy after 7-8pm.

        2. Yeah really need a location since there are so many places to choose from. Also how many people and how old are the people in your group?

          2. The Campbell Room at Grand Central Terminal is well located and might fit your needs:

            1. The bar at Strip House would fit nicely.

                Which one? There are two locations I believe?

                  The midtown east one has a much bigger bar area so I'm guessing that's the one.
