unpretentious outdoor drinks

mrl0323 | May 31, 2009 04:50 PM

Hi I'm trying to get small group (20 or so people, age: 30somethings), together for outdoor cocktails. In today economy, i’d like not to offer $12-$15 drinks and am looking for something more low key. Looking only for Manhattan. It will be a monday evening in June. I’d like to keep it near trains, so people can get there easily. Am trying not to go north of 57th st. but would go down as far as soho, east village, west village if the spot was cool.

Have already considered:
Me’ Bar
Sutton Place
Ava Lounge
Rare View
Hudson Hotel
Boat Basin
Social West
Red Sky
El Ray Del Sol
Belmont Lounge
Stanton Public/Social

I’ve checked NY Mag, Citysearch and Time Out NY. I’ve checked Yelp and chowhound and i’ve asked all 400+ of my facebook friends.. im not finding anything....

Any other suggestions?

Please help.. :)
