What are your favorite places in Manhattan to have some drinks?

I realize this has been covered to a certain extent already and the usual mentions are Pegu Club,PDT,Death & Co,Flatiron Lounge,etc.What I'm wondering is where do you most enjoy going out for a few drinks?The only criteria is that it has to have very good cocktails.For me some other pluses are a good beer and wine selection,friendly & competent service,some tasty food to nosh on.My favorite cocktail longes are Pegu and Flatiron,although I haven't been to some the others that are considered top tier.But I find that I really enjoy a good restaurant bar like Gramercy Tavern.I enjoy having a few drinks with a lively buzz from people dining at tables in the background.Some other restaurant bars that I like are Keens,Dylan Prime,Giorgio's of Gramercy and The Harrison.A place that doesn't make the cut for me is the bar at Bryant Park.It's a great setting but the quality of the drinks there is lacking.What are some places that you look forward to going to for quality cocktails and what else do you look for in addition to good drinks?
