4 bars to meet bankers in New York
1) Stone Street Tavern
Stone Street Tavern backs onto one of the few pedestrian streets in the city and is lined with fun places to meet and greet. Every restaurant on this block has communal picnic tables set up – and it’s where Wall Streeters like to let loose and party. Historically, this was the first paved street in Manhattan.
2) Dorrian's Red Hand
Red checkered table-cloths say old New York, in the most classic sense. This place attracts the preppie and finance crowd who come for the relaxed vibe and camaraderie. Tuesday nights feature karaoke, a great night to mingle, and fans young and old gather to watch the game.

3) Casa Lever
Located on that part of Park Avenue which is virtually all banks, it’s a place where men in suits conduct serious business while downing elegant Italian dishes. The bar at the front is slightly more casual, with same clientele enjoying Martinis, exceptional wines by the glass, and small bites. Cool architecture and original Warhol portraits.
4) Cipriani Club 55
Regulars from Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs head here to elegantly unwind. Dine on the gorgeous outdoor terrace with palm trees and imposing columns that looks out right onto Wall Street, or in the library-style room with exotic wood paneling. Go early evening and order a Bellini, of course.
