A grand night in the lobby of the Brown Hotel with people passing by and an excellent live pianist who really enjoys his music and enjoys chatting with customers. Great bourbon list and staff who know their trade. Recommend highly.

The Brown Hotel Lobby bar had a very nice ambiance The hot brown was large enough for two. An appetizer of fries would easily feed several people Staff was very efficient. The food was hot and promptly served. We enjoyed our meal very much.

The perfect attire is jeans and a blazer, but the range is pretty wide. I'd advocate adding some elegance to your approach, just for fun.
