We happened upon the Driskill after a family wedding. What a beautiful historic hotel. The lobby and bar are just gorgeous. Beautiful carved ceilings and lovely stained glass everywhere. The bar has fantastic live music each night. We heard a wonderful 3 piece acoustic group that were just great and unlike many of the other bars in town they have a decent wine list? Worth the time enjoying both the scenery and the music.
