Three on the list are in New York; one in San Francisco; and one in Boston.
Hay Adam's Off The Record Bar and the Willard's Round Robin Bar.
We can't disagree - and are particular fans of the Kentucky Derby Party at the Willard. But other Penn Quarter hotels make for a great meeting spot for a drink. Poste patio in the summer is hard to beat, and the Presidential Sports Bar in the Renaissance is not just for tourists.
We also often find ourselves sipping to the soft piano music in the Grand Hyatt.
