There's a hidden gem at the Grand Vista Hotel.
Right by the main lobby, there's a small bar. Inside is a nice little place to drink. It's not overly crowded and noisy (if you want that, there's a nightclub right around the corner). There's a bartender there named Sal. He's a great guy. His drinks are never watered down. He's excellent at starting conversations that involve everyone sitting at the bar.
Cons: Far From Sightseeing
