OK, I'm introducing my female friend to my husband's male friend tomorrow night. I'm looking for a nice bar with good drinks - the boys drink beer, the ladies drink mojitos, margaritas, and other nice cocktails. A cool funky, good lighting atmosphere is desired as well as a conversation-friendly noise level as this is "getting-to-know-you" kind of affair. Would prefer East Village or LES, but will consider West Village as well. Your suggestions are welcome!
