An unmarked door alongside some bookshelves leads to this literary-themed bar inside the hip Eaton Hotel. Cocktails take on names inspired by famous books, and orders of potato chips with caramelized onion dip and pimento cheese or deviled eggs with trout roe and barbecued eel make for upscale, addicting snacks. Choose a spot at the bar or opt for a seat in the surrounding lounge, outfitted with both couches and more intimate tables. If the vibe is too low-key, take a trip around the hotel’s other options, such as the Wild Days rooftop or Michele’s, a new American fine dining restaurant from Michelin-starred chef Matt Baker.
