We are back 13 days later after our successful rooftop meet. We will be at the Hudson Bar & Books. This is the smallest of the Bar & Books threesome but looks very similar to the other two. Located in the East Village they tried to keep this place a little upscale for the modern day person. A real nice selections of spirits and nicely made cocktails. There are table areas all around the place served by the red dress waitresses. There is a nice selection of food, so no need for a pit stop. There are no TV's here except for the one that continues to play old James Bond movies. They do have an outdoor setup also. I suggest to bring your own cigars and paid the $5 cutting fee. Summer is here, so what's better then a good cigar, drinks and friends. Hope you can make it.
