Thirsty grownups

Where do cool grown-ups go to drink? We're two women in early forty's, wine drinkers and food lovers, who are in town for museums, antiques, and the odd shot of tequila.

Not sure how cool it is, but I'd go to the Anchor Bar which is the original home of Buffalo wings. Just a thought.

Thanks - we've been there. And we love it. As an alternative I'm looking more for a wine-y bar type thing. Any ideas?

Where are you staying?

Some good places to go for drinks & food are:

Left Bank on Rhode Island Street, It is a small place, has a patio and great atmosphere and a great place just for a drink

Mothers on Virginia Street. Coles on Elmwood, Gabriels Gate on Allen Street, Nektar on Elmwood.

Out of the city is Dock of the Bay -- they have a great outdoor patio and the crowd is a bit older.

Sole in Williamsville on Main Street - usually has an older crowd and awesome gucamole!

Thanks for the suggestions. Left Bank sounds great. We're staying at the Holiday Inn on Delaware - and hope to spend more time on foot than in the car, stopping for the occasional cocktail.

From the Holiday Inn you can walk across the street to Mothers and Gabriel Gate is around the corner on Allen. Also across the street is Tempo which has awsome food but pricey - not sure if people just go there for drinks or not.

Another place you might want to stop at is La Ti Da - alittle restaurant on Allen by the interesection of Elmwood. They have a nice patio in the back.

Thanks for all the feedback.

Had a lovely weekend and managed to visit La Ti Da (lovely!) , Hardware on Allen (loud, but good), and breakfast at Betty's.

Will be back.
