There are some hotel bars you avoid: the ones with dusty bottles on Ikea shelves and a guy in a suit drinking warm Stella. Then there’s The Other Room, a speakeasy hidden behind unmarked velvet curtains in the lobby of the Marriott Tang Plaza - and a place you should seek out even if you’re not ending your night in a room upstairs. The cocktail menu is divided by era, so you can drink an Old Fashioned made from a 19th-century recipe, or try something from their collection of rare liquors, many of which they age themselves. It’s not the cheapest place in town but no place this interesting ever is.
