Oh right, and about the whole hard to find thing. So there are two ways to get into Benjamin Cooper: you can enter Hotel G on Geary, make your way inside to the front desk, hit the unmarked staircase behind you, and from the top of the staircase you'll see a door to your right -- take that and you'll make your way into this hallway, which'll eventually lead you to the bar. You can ALSO get in via Mason -- there's an unmarked door there, too, which'll lead you to a staircase with a spray painted stencil of Cooper next to it. Head up it, hang a right, boosh.
