    Start at outdoor tequila park, move to the library bar and then to the special section inside which shuts only at 2am. Perfect Saturday night/morning. Fun group time.

    Every detail here is carefully executed, from the cherry wood walls to the Toulouse-Lautrec monographs to the relaxed lounge soundtrack. And, of course, the purple pool table seals the deal for us. Read more

    Very cute hotel bar, great spot for a date or just some heart to heart with a friend! Awesome cocktails and you can also play checkers or backgammon while you enjoy your drink! 🍸

    Take the neon green escalator up and you'll be transported into a world of class and sophistication. This bar is not only gorgeous, but has amazing cocktails - order the Library.

    Much more relaxed and better for solo unwinding than the actual restaurant on the hotel... And a plus for books and pictures of cows with hats everywhere!

    Trendy, cozy, impressive decor. Great 4 hh (common), dates (library) or just lounge around. Limited food selection in the common only :(

    This place is a travesty. Solid drinks but unacceptable to turn on the lights and stop serving at 12:15 because they aren't making enough money. Wtf?

    Great bar with fireplace. Also cool about this place are the couches, foosball and chic atmosphere. Great date place*

    There's a gas fireplace and cosy couches if you can snag one. Surprisingly, not a huge amount of atmosphere though.

    Get the Library cocktail: Bulleit bourbon, walnut liqueur, a dash of bitters and a whole lot of deliciousness.

    This place is so expensive and the service is so-so, but the space makes up for all of it.

    The kind of atmosphere that makes you want to order an old fashioned, even if you hate whiskey.

    Don't bother coming here. Major attitude at the door - you're not allowed to wear boots - unless they have heels

    Unless you get Anthony as your bartender, you haven't experienced the library.

    Nothing as civilised as sitting in the library, the cows looking down over you enjoying a Gin and Tonic.
