Concierge.com's insider take:
It's hard to believe that the hottest bar in town is in a Hilton—but on weekend nights, the proprietors here practically have to beat the crowds back. The space is long and expansive, but the candlelit groups of comfortable chairs mean you can still have intimate conversations, and all the space means you'll never feel claustrophobic, even when the crowds are thick. In good weather, take your drinks out to the deck; it overlooks the beautiful Queen Victoria Building across the street.
Open Mondays through Wednesdays from 5 pm, Thursdays and Fridays from 3 pm, Saturdays from 4 pm.
