Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. My wife and I have a ten-month old baby and are thrilled to be parents, but I'd like to treat my wife to a grown-up night out with some friends. I know only a year out of the bar scene should make it easy for me to pick a place, but I'm a dive bar kind of guy and would like to make this a more special event location.
Thinking about 12 people, quality cocktails, and not too loud. (Yes, I realize that made me seem like an old dad, but we'd really like to catch up with old friends we haven't seen in awhile.)
Midtown or below is also great. Thanks so much and I feel less overwhelmed just by asking for advice!
