    At 10pm it reeks of children and old people. And by reeks, I mean children and old people are hogging the tables.

    They don't ID cus it's a hotel bar. That being said, you underage kids, don't ruin it for everyone–if you plan to, be ready to drop $15 on a cocktail.

    Ice on martini rims is a gimmick. It slides into your drink, leaving an ice layer and watering it down. Not wholly impressed.

    It smells like herbal essences and is playing Norah jones. I am easing into my 40s

    Tall shelves, stacked high with ports & cognacs and a wide range of whiskys are lit from behind, & there are candles on the handful of lounge tables -- but that's about it for light in here. Read more

    Try the Bond Cocktails! Americano, Vesper, and the old fashion (new fashion on the menu). They're expertly made.
