River Bar Lounge

Enjoy some good company and a vintage malt whiskey, port, or cognac in a great atmosphere at the new River Bar Lounge. Grand leather chairs. Wood-paneled walls. Old nautical charts and exquisite paintings. And a ceiling made of heart of cypress and pecky cypress beams more than 200 years old. An extension of the River Bar restaurant, the lounge oozes charm and character, the perfect backdrop for nightcap, a relaxing bite, or to catch the game on TV.
