The Lounge also has a rolling dessert cart offered Mondays-Saturdays from 5pm to close featuring the seasonally-inspired sweets from Pasty Chef Sally Camacho. Some of the options include Cashew Crunch Chocolate Cremeux Verrine and Ovaltine Dipped in Caramelia Chocolate along with Brown Butter Tea Cakes which are designed for take-away to nibble at a sports game or movie...or perhaps while sitting in traffic.
And it wouldn't be a proper lounge without a selection of specialty cocktails. WP24's "Garden to Glass" cocktails all feature herbs and garnishes plucked from the hotel's rooftop garden. We could have sipped on a Ginger Crisp made with chambord vodka, sake and rimmed with ginger sugar ($16) all night long but the Dragon's Fire, made with patron anejo, grapefruit and jalapeno, (also $16) was excellent as well.
All in all you could probably get out of the lounge for about $40 per person (not including tax or tip) which is still way less than the $400 starting room rate at the Ritz.
