Help me get the most out of my me-time, or at least minimize the pain of having to work out of office hours.
- Friendly staff
- Decent regulars
- Not too cramped
- Laptop friendly
- A quiet atmosphere conducive to concentration
I quite like the sorts of places that have esoteric books on the wall and a bit of history in the decor. My own recommendations would be Vbar on Sullivan Street, and 71 Irving. Both of them are excellent establishments, but I'd love to hear about other great places for quiet Saturday afternoons and weekday evenings.
Many thanks in advance.
