From live music to sushi to burgers, it really is a cool spot. The staff was super accommodating to my random 20 person party we threw at them. And the food is always great! Love coming here especially late night!

We had so much fun at the Hamilton. Happy Hour had half price sushi and the best drinks. This is a lively bar scene with the best appetizers. Bar tenders come from Ireland are are super friendly as are all the customers.

We have been staying at the Willard for years and didn't realize until last weekend that The Hamilton was just across the street. Dinner Friday night and Brunch on Sunday were both spectacular. Great food and service.

Hadn't been to The Hamilton in over a year when I organized a brunch with a large group of friends. I chose the spot, had been talking up how good the food is, etc. The whole experience was awful. Our waitress seemed to go out...More
