We are big fans of cloth napkins, as we've mentioned in the past, but we hadn't considered fabric cocktail napkins until we saw this bin of them at the SoHo CB2.

Cocktail napkins are smaller than dinner napkins, and they're usually used to hold a glass wet with cold condensation, or to balance out tiny cocktail plates. They also keep cold, wet glasses from leaving marks on a bar.

We really like the idea of using cloth versions; they are reusable and just feel nicer in the hand. Since we would use them just for small cocktail parties with friends, we're not too worried about them getting thrown out with the bar trash.

These napkins from CB2 are very nice soft cotton, and only $9.95 for a pack of 8. They're white, so you can throw them into the wash and bleach out any wine stains.
