The Hancock Room is a separate entity within SIP Bar & Lounge. The ambience is dark and antique, evoking the time of the American Revolution––with comical artwork. You’ll find paintings of Abe Lincoln riding a bear (with a machine gun in one hand and the constitution in the other) and a Wolverine-like Ben Franklin on the walls. To get in on weekends, reservations are usually necessary and worth it because they serve some of the best drinks in town. The Hancock Room’s bar program focuses on classics and reinvented cocktails made with brandy, gin, rum, or whiskey, and they also offer local beers. Pro tip: order the brandy-based Betsy Ross, the gin-based Colonial Cocktail, or the rum-based Thomas Jefferson.
