  • Want some tips on some good bars in the area, maybe w/happy hour but not necessary.

    Sister is in town & we want some martinis.

    Between 5th & 8th and 44th to 57th

    Any ideas?

  • Smiths Bar is on the NW corner of 44th and 8th.  Think Blarney Stone.   ;)

  • King Cole Bar St. Regis Hotel 2 East 55th Street.  Your sister will likely be ok, but you are gonna have to clean up a bit first.

  • I'm not kidding, but the Westin hotel bar up on the 2nd floor at 43rd and 8th is decent.  It's quiet, they have a good snack menu, serve nuts and cockrtails, what more could you want...
    the A is a small price to pay

  • if she want something 'civilized' there's also Marseilles (maybe 44th/9th?), Un Deux Trois (between 6th - 7th, maybe 44th), the Westbank (42nd just west of 9th) -- all restaurants with a decent bar area.  Also Bar Centrale up above Joe Allen on 46th - restaurant row.  Raw bar/cocktails type thing.  Have fun!

    Seriously. 
     
    My old midtown/west spot was the Collins Bar at 47th on 8th, but they closed.  Its a shame.  Great drinks, divey, but not gross, top shelf booze and a great juke box.  Now its gone.

    I shall suggest a "dignified" TDR session here in the not too far future. How does that sound?
