Quiet drinks and snacks downtown?

nooodles | Mar 3, 2006 12:02 AM

Looking for a roomy, quiet place to grab a drink and maybe snacks. Tons of food not necessary, just a simple bar menu and well-made cocktails.

It does need to be quiet and non-claustraphobic. I've been falling in love with the Four Seasons bar lately, but it's too noisy. I like The Hidden Vine wine bar, but it's too cramped.

Orbit Room is tempting but doesn't serve food.

has anyone tried Jade? I assume it gets noisy.

Hawthorne Lane actually sounds perfect: how's the noise level?

A quick drive from Union Square would be ideal, but I appreciate all suggestions. TIA.
