What are my best options for Friday after-work drinks in downtown Boston?

I'm meeting someone for a first-date drink after work tomorrow, and I've suggested meeting in Downtown Crossing. I'd like to avoid crowds and noise but I know that's unrealistic on a Friday. What are some less-bad options within, say, a 10-minute walk? Would a hotel bar likely be better than a pub? And would going across the Fort Point Channel (to, say, Lucky's or Drink) help with the crowds at all? I know that showing up at 5:00 vs. 5:30 or 6:00 will make a big difference for at least finding a seat. Thanks!
