Elegant Spot for Champagne, Not Too Far From City Hall?

Denis | Nov 11, 2004 07:40 AM

This is a follow-up to the City Hall Wedding post I put up yesterday--I hope you all can indulge me for one further query. Turns out the bride and groom (who's my best friend) don't want a late lunch/early dinner as I'd thought they might, but instead definitely want to get some champagne or a drink someplace elegant and not too far from City Hall. I'm pretty flummoxed by this request--just don't know any places that would fit this bill. Oh, and one more catch: the place would have to be open at around 4 pm. A hotel bar was my initial thought given the timing, but the only nice-ish hotel I know of in that general vicinity is the Tribeca Grand, and I wouldn't describe the bar there as elegant. It needn't be *right* by City Hall--just not too long of a cab ride.

Any assistance would, as usual, be greatly appreciated.
