It is a great place during the day, but after hours on the weekend, look out the locals there and its crowded!!

We had checked out of the W but they invited us to the 5th year anniversary party. The "living room" at the W actually is made up of several rooms with bar service. Fun, hip place to have drinks and listen to music either with the dj or with live music.

Hubby and I had drinks here, and they were very good, despite the impression that the bartender didn't want to be there. These rooms are beautiful, and we enjoyed walking through them. The waitstaff were friendly, and checked on us at the right times. Good service.

This is a great place to people watch and lounge around and have a good conversation. The AC is super strong so a coat might help ;) waitstaff and bartenders are great. It's pricey but the drinks are good. The fries with brisket are amazing. Highly recommend trying those!

I spent time in The Living Room all four evenings of our visit to The W Hotel. Very relaxing, great service, with delicious popcorn and excellent pulled pork tacos. Cheesecake was awesome. Fun to people-watch, as there were a couple of special events happening that brought out the "beautiful people"! A glass of Mumm bubbly was way over-priced, but it's... More

You can park your Maserati out front or you can park your Pinto on the street around the corner. Either way, at the right time of day, you can live it up at the Living Room at the W Hotel. They have a late evening happy hour if your budget prefers. The menu cocktails are delicious. The food provides either... More

My wife and I stayed at the W, so we decided to stop in here before going to dinner. We are not big "bar" people but this place is very comfortable. We sat on the couch and had a couple drinks and ordered some of the awesome pop corn and chips/dip. We didn't stay very late, so not sure how... More
