This might be an impossible question, but I have to try. Does anyone know of a relatively quiet place where approximately six people can meet somewhere near Times Square (the closer to 44th & Bway, the better) earlyish on a Thursday night (around 6:30)? It's a book club meeting that will last about an hour and a half. The noise level has to be sort of low so we can hear each other, and it can't be so crowded that we'd have trouble finding places for six. Couches would be a big plus. It can have food and drinks or just drinks.
We've met in the back room of The Art Bar (among other places), and that space works great (it's loungy and dark but not overly crowded, noisy or smoky) but the food there is excretable and this time we have to meet near Times Square.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
