The Marlton Hotel Lobby – not to be confused with the hotel’s restaurant, Margaux – consists of a cocktail bar, espresso bar, and a lot of insanely cozy seating.
There is no atmosphere more inviting on (hopefully) one of the last of these cold “winter” days – snuggling up next to the fireplace with a hot chocolate and/or glass of wine is the next best thing to actually being able to afford a brownstone with similar amenities.
There is a menu of small bites available – beyond that, it’s a great location for business drinks, dates – casual and first, meeting hot girls, awesome cocktails and wine and entertaining out of town friends.
Good For Business Drinks: Though the couches may be a bit too casual, there are a few actual table/chair sets scattered around the room. If you can grab one of these, it’s generally quiet enough to have a conversation over small plates. As a bonus, the lobby also offers free WiFi.
Good For Casual Dates/First Dates: Seating can get a little scarce but if you go at off-peak hours, this is, arguably, the most comfortable downtown spot to relax and chat over drinks.
