    Ask for the special Tommy Driftwood tour. If your waiter hasn't heard of it, he has. The password is "cachaca".

    This bar is inside the old Mallory Hotel. When it was renovated a number of years ago, they left the bar alone—except for the cheese popcorn, which I miss. An amazing in selection. Read more

    Reminds me of a speakeasy with its dark cedar walls and low lights. Specialty cocktails befitting its classic history and Hollywood glamour.

    Excellent happy hour selection including the truffle fries which are absolutely to-die-for! Sip on a signature Strawberry Field champagne cocktail in one of the darkest, sensual bars in town. Cheers!

    An upscale little bar inside the Hotel deLuxe, the Driftwood Room is a dimly lit charmer worth a stop early in the night if you're in the area.

    Here's how happy hour works: order the sizzling mushrooms. eat 1/3. dump in the mac&cheese. eat. THEN order the $2 parm popcorn and toss into any sauce you have left in the pan. That's how its done!

    The stars here, though, are of the Hollywood ilk: the Driftwood Room’s signature cocktails draw inspiration from silver screen icons like Elizabeth Taylor (crème de violette and champagne)... Read more

    The Liz Taylor rocks and so does the chicken chowder. Excellent ambience but servers weren't too attentive to us sitting in the lobby at first.

    My new favorite happy hour! The Elizabeth Taylor is like a really sophisticated grape soda -- and I mean that in a good way! The bartenders are very passionate and knowledgable about their jobs!

    Great cocktails and probably the darkest bar in the city, so if you're looking for a clandestine location for a tryst, this is it; and if you're just look for a great bar, bring your flashlight app.
