Stayed at the hotel, fell in love with the bar. Great old school atmosphere. Excellent staff. They make a mean Sazerac. Excellent food - both meals and appetizers. Even if I wasn't staying at the hotel, I'd still stop by for the bar.

The staff was nice and friendly. Not loud. Just a quiet, dim lit, relaxing place to have a drink, snack or meal. Good drinks during HH. A few choices of HH food.

Great selection of quality liquors. Bartender was helpful with dinner ideas. Drinks were average priced for a higher end bar.

Do yourself a favor and get the Smoke and Mirrors, or the I am the Walrus. They’re funky and cool. The place has a great vibe.

The Polar Bar is the lounge for the Arctic Club. It is outfitted to be reminiscent of the Klondike gold rush era. Lovely and friendly.
