The Press Room

Though there are no bold names attached to The Press Room, it’s a welcome addition to an area otherwise wrought with long-wait restaurants and fussy lounges. Located in the basement of quaint B&B The Publishing House, the dark little wine bar serves more than 100 selections by the glass, a handful of decent cocktails made with local spirits and a few beers.

THE DRINK TO DRINK: ​Start with a glass of prosecco and end with a pour of local Rhine Hall brandy.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: ​There’s a menu of small-plate-centric snacks if you’re hungry, but The Press Room is best as a stop, not a destination.
