We started off at this hotel's rooftop bar on a Saturday night and while nice, found it to be very crowded. After a day on the streets filled with people this felt like more of the same. The lobby bar was a different story. We...More

The whole point of the refinery is mixing new and old, and Winnie's is no exception and does so well. Once a week Winnie's Jazz Bar turns into a Jazz/R&B, and these evenings are awesome. Always a talented and classy line up.
