I don’t normally find myself at the W Hotel. I’ve only been once or twice, and every time it’s because I was meeting up with someone who was already there. There’s no particular reason for this…I just had this idea that it was super ritzy and upscale and posh or whatever.
Well it is, but, after my last visit to the bar at Market I decided that I need to check myself. Why would I rule this place out? I don’t know. But it definitely won’t happen again. In fact, I need to make it part of my regular going out routine ASAP. Market is upscale, but any normal person without a black card can go and have a few drinks, it’s a totally comfortable non-stuffy environment with a super nice staff. And the drinks! Omg, the drinks. The bartender there, Domingo, makes original cocktails that show more personality than his leopard print colored hair (if that’s even possible)!
This is why you need to get drinks at Market, like today …
