Hotel Bar
$$$
“This is a local favorite! The carousel bar slowly revolves around the room and before you know it, you’re looking at a different part of the room. It’s hard to explain why we find it so charming (maybe just plain good memories). The carousel bar itself is good for couples but there’s also an adjacent lounge if you’re in a group. There’s live jazz music usually on Wednesday’s through Sunday’s. ”
