Good bar for a meetup in NYC, around 48 and lex, on a friday after work?

I'll be heading for the city in a few weeks, a Friday night to Sunday morning jaunt. Looking for a bar that won't get overcrowded right away with after-work drinkers to call a meetup of old friends, people on a certain webforum I frequent, etc. Nothing fancy but quirky is okay.

We (feistycakes and I) want to keep it close to the hotel as we have a robust agenda for the next day- no crazy Brooklyn underground parties for us, we are old now!

Your best bet is the walk over to second Ave. Stags Head maybe?

You should probably post this in IRL and let the locals guide you..
Assuming the certain webforum is us...

Friday night isn't a big after work drink time. You'll find plenty of space and good cocktails at Maloney & Porcelli, At Vermillion, Bull & Bear. Maggie's is my go to Irish pub thereabouts but half a dozen other options would do.

Was going to also recommend Stag's Head or the Cornerstone Tavern, which is actually attached the the Stag's Head (entrance on 51st and Lex). Both stay pretty quiet until late.

I would agree Maggie's is the best option due west.
