Being that MM is in LA for the week, I have no excuse but to see all of my girlfriends! No too bad of a deal! So, tonight I’ve made plans with a few of them. While debating on where we should meet after work, my objectives were:
stay in a neutral zone – aka “midtown” – since we’ll all be coming from our offices
make it classy and fun for us professional women
good and not too expensive martinis
I gave the ladies a list of my recommendations, and we decided on BUtterfield 8, a 100-year-old restaurant & lounge with dramatic crown mold ceilings that bring the nostalgic turn of the century feel of the classy New York speakeasy. A 35-foot granite bar and wide plank walnut floors contiue the theme. Back lit walls of white onyx and dark mahogany along with five massive Chandeliers creating a warm semi-formal setting.
