Manhattan restaurants with great bar areas

Hi - want to have a few friends meet for drinks and snacks at 4-5pm on a Saturday. Looking for a restaurant with a nice sized bar area. Don't want to do just a bar but want something that will be comfortable with some standing room and that won't be too busy until 6ish. Downtown area?

    what sort of vibe?
    Dive? Upscale?

        I love terroir, and the tribeca location is a good space- their snacks are also very good.

    2. I love going to Otto at odd hours. Great wine and amazing antipasti if you need to nosh.

        1. Boqueria in soho or flatiron
          Bar veloce (wine)
