Came here for a cocktail at 5:30 pm on a week night. Great vintage vibe in an historic setting. Free valet parking for two hours - be sure to tip the valet - and you’ve got a great venue for an evening cocktail!

This is the bar that is within the Hilton President Hotel. It's also known as the Providence. Nice upscale but check reviews for the Providence to get more detail.

Nice place to hang for a beer or whatever. Staff friendly and is just a few steps above hotel restaurant so that's handy should you decide to eat in rather than stroll the historical streets to experience more good restaurants.

We enjoy the ambiance of the historic Drum Room.. The lady bartending was right on the spot with her attention and quick service even though it was extremely busy with many of us that were there due to a cancellation of a concert.
