A friendly antiques dealer once told us, "There is nothing finer in the world than spending an entire afternoon at a beautiful hotel bar, letting the world go by." And we have to 100% agree.
Are you the type who uses the hotel bar only as a last resort? When that business trip has turned so sour that pretty much what keeps you going is the prospect of blurring the rest of the evening with continuous glasses of prosecco until you wake up and it's time to fly home?
Or are you a social hotel bar drinker? New technologies are now popping up that make it so darn easy to make a friend while traveling alone. And the hotel bar is at least one reliable spot for a casual meetup.
Are you strictly about the upscale hotel bar, or is it the sleazier the better?
We want to hear from you, fellow travelers! Is there a certain type of hotel bar that appeals to you, or do you spring for them all? And what's your drink of choice? Post away in the comments below!
