Hanny's

A chic restaurant, Hanny’s is also a popular downtown drinking destination for after-work drinks and post-game cocktails (or post-theater, depending on your interests). Housed in a former men’s department store, the bar nods to the building’s midcentury roots — designer names like Dior are still displayed on the walls, and you might encounter a classic mannequin — and its massive bar is staffed by servers in semi-formal attire working beneath a high ceiling. Take a trip to the unisex restrooms even if you don’t have to go; you walk past a trippy house of mirrors with mood lighting. In a place like this, we always go with a classic cocktail: martini, Manhattan, mai tai, Old Fashioned, French 75 — and all are professionally made at Hanny’s. If you’re in the mood for wine, though, the list is strong, offering “Six Decades of Napa Valley,” from the 1969 Chappellet to the 2019 Editorial Cabernet Sauvignon.
