I just discoverd this site a few days ago and it has MORE than answered most of my questions when it comes to planning a night on the town for my boyfriend's 40th birthday. However, I'm getting down to the nitty-gritty and I need some informed opinions!
We're starting the night with an Absinthe tasting and dinner at No. 9 Park -- clearly a Chowhound favorite. Now, I just need to find a great place for after dinner cocktails. I was thinking the Cava Lounge at the Ivy might be ideal; however, I just don't know enough about the bar/lounge scene in Boston to be sure.
I'm ideally looking for a schwanky yet not-too-stuffy and not-too-crowded lounge with great ambiance and service within walking distance of No. 9. A great martini list and super selection of beers are always pluses.
Thanks in advance!
