This Bar is revered for its elegance--note the capital B--not least because it is the alleged "birthplace of the martini Renaissance." If you didn't know that such a Renaissance existed in the first place, a cursory glance at the drinks menu casts aside any doubt about the statement. The Bar has all the luxe features you'd expect from a hotel of such stature: 30-foot ceilings, marble tables, a sedate mix of cream and white coloring, snacks that include the Maryland Crab Cake Sliders and Calvisius Osetra Caviar. Here, clients are brought to be won over, love interests escorted to be fully courted. Neither works every time, but those martinis sure are great wingmen.
