Looking for a club / restaurant with old time charm

Cangoc | Mar 5, 2009 08:22 PM

I want to take my lady friend from out of town for a very special night in town. I live in the city but I am pretty new and the people I know have different tastes. I am looking for a restaurant / club which would ideally be like the copa cabana club from the movie Goodfellas. If you don’t know what I am talking about check out this clip (

Basically a place where we could sit down and order great food at the same time listen to soft classy music. Basically the old New York charm.

The copa cabana club is now a salsa club and that is definitely not where I want to go. I looked around and I find BirdLand ( interesting. Are there other places like these that you folks could recommend?

Most probably due to our schedules we would be able to go out only on a Sunday or Monday (bummer), so places that would be open then would be preferable. But do recommend even if the place is not open on these days, may be in few months down the road things would be different.

And, money is not a constraint.
