Inside the recently renovated Jefferson hotel, Quill is a series of small rooms. You can sidle up to the gleaming yellow glass bar or grab a seat in the lounge, where 18th-century maps line the walls and a pianist plays Tuesday through Saturday from 9 to midnight. In the Book Room, there’s a fireplace and sofas. Suited bartenders pass out cloth napkins and swoop in to refill bowls of olives and nuts. House cocktails ($15 each) include such good seasonal creations as the Sparkling Clementine, made with Prosecco and freshly squeezed juice.
