I love that the bar changes things up every now and again with their wine lists and live music. The service is exceptional and the ambiance is lovely. Great spot for a glass of wine after the ballet or theatre. It’s tricky to chat at...More

Arrived early before they start the live piano music. We sat near the piano and enjoyed the live performance. The service was prompt and courteous. The place is quite popular and the drinks are good, with never ending servings of snacks!

The hotel's bar is nicely decorated and the staff is very attentive and quick. Lots of escorts roaming around hunting for rich businessmen. Drink prices are ridiculously expensive. Save your cash, go to another downtown bar.
