“Great bar”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

This is a very reasonably priced old bar which has a lot of history to it. We arrived at happy hour, with the drinks being reasonable, food good, and service great. takes a few minutes for your eyes to adjust--it is dark! And while it was busy, they had an adequate number of waiters to keep everyone happy and not waiting.

“Champange cocktails with a twist of old Hollywood”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The Driftwood Room located inside Hotel Deluxe has a great happy hour menu and delicious champagne cocktails. The dark setting and hotel decor remind me of old Hollywood from the 50s. The truffle fries come with dipping sauces and the croque monsieur (grilled ham and cheese) sandwich is delicious.

“Dark but decent”
Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

Other than the fact that the room is very, VERY dark, this is a lovely and intimate bar. Creative cocktails and a nice bar menu from the adjacent restaurant. Friendly servers and comfortable bar seats as well as cozy booths. As our group grew we opted to relocate for the brighter lobby but we continued to enjoy cocktails and excellent snacks.

“Great Happy Hour”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Good happy hour deals and a very cool place! I especially loved that they do two happy hours a day - one, 4-6 and one 9:30 to close. Great for an after dinner drink when you're staying in the hotel
