Hotel Delmano is where you go in Williamsburg when you need a good drink in a setting that’s perfect for a quiet conversation. It’s dark, cozy, and and an ideal date spot. The best part is, it isn’t pretentious. Just know that you have to be seated (no standing), and the space isn’t huge. Still, you can usually find a seat.
