Great space, poor service
I love the decor and layout of this hotel. Some highlights: a pool with a see-through floor so you can see people swimming from below and showers by the pool that look like go-go boxes. The service was awful, though -- I went soon after their opening so maybe they are ironing out the kinks. I really like the n'hood its on. Not the typical gay hood, but one well worth exploring that I might not have if not for the hotel.
Under One Roof
Everything you need in two well-laid out floors. Friendly crowd with a little something for everyone.
Shermans offers a great brunch. All of the traditional American food plus some more unusual Jewish-type food such as gefilte fish, matza brie and whitefish. The servers are awesome.
Good looking crowd...
Good looking crowd, fun music, impressive architecture -- so why don't I like it very much? It's a hard place to meet people partially because its so open and cavernous. There's no real center or focal point.
Great n'hood place
Fun music, fun crowd, neighborhood feel -- it works. The smallish size of the bar leads to a good amount of mingling. While other HK bars cater to a theater audience, this one is more for those who actually work in theater (or wish they did). The music (often 80's) is interesting and up. It also features a great, very social outdoor smoking patio, as its front, which makes me wish i was a smoker.
good place to sit and chat...
With couches lining the wall, its a good place to sit and chat with friends. Bartenders are friendly and it gets a pre-and-post theater crowd.
A pretty casual...
A pretty casual mixed bar with a dance floor. It lacks decor and any real focus. A very friendly shot boy kept me coming back.
