Happy Hour Details:
Wednesdays and Thursdays: Special cocktails.
You’d be hard pressed to find a cozier spot on a chilly evening. The lounge here feels like the wood-paneled library of a well-worn private club, with dim lighting, a crackling fire, and antique sofas. It’s the kind of place that makes you want to sip a glass of sherry, but bartender Chantal Tseng’s craft cocktails, such as the hot mulled cider with spiced rum, are worth trying. The light fare—miniature duck sandwiches, mushroom quesadillas—is good, too. Sunday nights, there’s live jazz.
