Walk inside the Sixty Soho Hotel, go up a flight of stairs, and you’ll find a big, semi-hidden spot called The Gordon Bar. It’s a cocktail bar with big couches and coffee tables covered in coffee table books, and it’s perfect for when you need a nice spot in Soho to drink with a few clients or a couple of people who don’t go out that much anymore. Your drinks won’t be cheap, but you should be able to find a seat easily enough.

St Tropez Soho
The Soho location of St Tropez, a French spot with a bunch of small plates and wines by the glass, works for drinks and a light bite with a date.
La Sirène has changed a bit over the last few years, but this French cult favorite in a strange part of SoHo is still pretty damn good and pretty damn authentic.
Papatzul seems to be just more middle-of-the road Mexican that pairs acceptably with strong margaritas. It’s the kind of place where you have to yell at the person sitting across from you, and should probably order everything the moment you see your server because you might not see him again for a while.
