Editorial Review

What we love: The upstairs bar. The bar is a bit cheesy — the Flying V guitars on the ceiling and quasi-vintage posters give off a Hard Rock Cafe vibe — but it’s very spacious and the “private” rooms down the hall provide a nice place to relax when things get rowdy, as they frequently do.

What we don’t: Sold-out shows. When a show at the Hotel is sold out, it can get quite uncomfortable. It’s hard to move, it’s hard to breathe and, in turn, it’s hard to enjoy the performance.
