Nice quiet bar in the Crockett Hotel - about average for a hotel bar. Drinks were a little weak but they have free popcorn.

This bar was awesome. The story behind it is even better. When you go in just ask the bartender about the history and he's obliged to tell you. Loved it!!

Not necessarily a destination bar, just the bar in our hotel (The Crockett). Stopped here a couple times (before heading up to our room) after we had already been out and about . . . . Nice (talkative) bartender.
