I got a phone number at a bar...Now what?

Over the weekend, I was hanging out at a bar, and unexpectedly hit it off really well with a guy I met. Before the end of the night, we traded numbers, and he made the comment that "we should meet up someplace that isn't here." I'm not new to the dating world, but I am new to the "meeting random people at bars" scene (I'm a country boy in the big city). What's the proper etiquette here? How long should I wait to contact him, or is it already too late?
Should I invite him out to coffee? Dinner? With other friends? Formal dating seems a bit lost on my generation (myself included), so I'd like to avoid a formal "date" if at all possible.
FWIW, we're both dudes, and as far as I know, neither of us wants a quick hookup or an immediate LTR. Worst case, I wouldn't mind simply being friends.
