Lounge/Bar bites midtown and below.

Hi I need to entertain a few different groups of friends coming for the summer over the next few weeks. One group consists of old college buddys- male, 30s, some meat and potatoes guys but also a few adventurous foodies..
The next are two girls visiting from Europe (already requesting aperitivo, etc.)
Last is a mixed group of diverse tastes also mostly foodies.

Everyone in these 3 groups appreciates a well-made cocktail and/or craft beer.
What are your favorite spots (preferably midtown and below- anywhere west, east, and south really) for small plates, great beers, good wine by the glass, and a loungy (no sports bars, loud tunes) vibe?

Focus would be on great, delicious, small plates.
