    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

    Sip on an Elizabeth Taylor, a throat-tickling cocktail mixing champagne with crème de violette named after the late Hollywood star.

    Mike makes the best Sazerac in the city. Hands down. Do it.

    The Portland '85 is a great choice.

    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.

  • Mary D.

    Incredible happy hour and Mike is a fantastic bartender!

    Quiet in the afternoon during the week. Happy Hour starts at 2 pm. For Spring 2011, HH discounts on champagne cocktails - $6.

    Order a Sloan Ranger. It's not on the menu anymore, but it is amazing.

    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.

    Late night happy hour is great! Cozy but glamorous.

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

    Quiet, dark, and tasty drinks. A bit off the beaten path, but worth a visit

    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

    No reservations, but the scalloped booth seats are lovely for two to snuggle into each other.

    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 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.

    6-9 is the only time there's NOT happy hour here.
