Best Bars for Business Networking and Meetings, Entertaining Clients, and Happy Hours: The Willett House in Port Chester
A smoky Scotch. A filled-to-the-rim cosmo. A peppery Zinfandel. It’s all here at The Willett House, a stalwart Port Chester establishment with the Old World charm of a classic steakhouse and the strong pours of experienced mixologists who know how to do things right (big hellos to 19-year veteran Kathleen Donahue-Webb and her killer pomegranate martinis). We like that the place is low maintenance, with a casual bar area that clearly separates itself from the more serious dining room. The central location also helps, drawing high-power suits from both Westchester and Connecticut.
Happy Hour: Yes, half-price on beer, wine, cocktail, and bar menu from 4 to 6:30 pm, Monday to Friday.
