The Sitting Room is a dark Queen Anne bar where you can drink spritzes and pop olives and truffled almonds like M&Ms. The bartenders are friendly, and we could subsist for weeks on potato chips and their homemade onion dip. The best part is that you can have a few different types of nights here based on where you sit - there are soft sofas in the back, the bar feels like a library desk (in a good way), and a row of candlelit tables would definitely work for a date.
