Happy Hour Details:
Wednesdays and Thursdays: Special cocktails.
A difficult decision awaits you at this cozy inn and restaurant: Head to the bar to watch Chantal Tseng whip up elegant refreshments such as the fizzy Italo-Franco Aperitivo—with Prosecco, elderflower liqueur, Cocchi Americano, and grapefruit peel—or settle into the lodge-like lounge, with its tempting nooks, wood-beamed ceiling, and other-century aura of traveler camaraderie? On warm evenings, there’s really no choice, as it’s impossible to turn down the upstairs patio, where ivy creeps over handsome brick walls and an overhead parachute mitigates the harsher effects of the sun. Insider tip: All three of the aforementioned spots are often crowded and first come, first served. Get there early. Open daily.
