    Try a cocktail at the bar from the menu and take suggestions for any off-menu cocktails from the bartenders for round 2. They're excited about making it and know a heck of a lot about good drinks.

    The coolest. Art museum right on first floor of hotel. Best mixed drink I've ever had: gin and house-made tonic, none of that quinine overkill, more of that fresh ginger snap. Food: simply great.
