You’ve seen it before—an attractive bar with a thoughtful booze selection spoiled by an annoying clientele. So it is at beautiful Flatiron spot Lillie’s. An oblivious, dude-heavy crowd undermines the ornate 19th-century interior and the tasteful beverage list, which includes an easy-drinking proprietary wine, rare whiskeys (look out for the nine Glenmorangie Scotches) and a broad collection of craft beers. But once the sun sets and the suits vacate their barstools, Lillie’s is easy to enjoy. Call it an after after-work spot.
