Excellent bar

Very good service, nice cocktails. Was perfect for pre-dinner drinks or simply waiting for your colleagues to get ready. Was also great when we didn't want to go out due to heavy rain.

The Driftwood Room is a great lounge, designed to evoke a feeling of stepping back in time for sure. While it's small, it never gets noisy or a crowded feeling, even when full.

Our family has enjoyed the Driftwood room since the 1950's to the present, often stopping there before we had our Thanksgiving or Christmas meal in the dining room. The family who owned the hotel and kept it in tip top shape sold a few years ago and we feared for the planned "massive renovation" by the new owners. All they... More

This is among the best drink and food elections of any lounge. I loved the Manhattan menu and recommend the Manhattan Board (sampler) All the food was great, I had the steamers. They have lots of gluten free and vegan items.

You think Dean or Frank will walk in at any moment...... Happy Hour is great (and we were told about this place by a young friendly cop--good guy :) Champagne cocktails are on the happy hour menu and a really great sandwich too. Out of the normal stomping grounds, but worth the stroll.

Oh I like this little bar in the Hotel DeLuxe! It's a hopping spot to meet friends or enjoy one of their specialty Manhattens on your own. Don't miss out on the Happy Hour prices and the really tasty bar bites.

The Driftwood is a dark long narrow room with a long bar and about 7 table. Great drinks and a good happy hour. I had a Black and Blue which was a blackberry blueberry martini.
