Ledger Bar

Readers' Choice

Located on the second floor of the 9, the ritzy downtown hotel that opened last year, the Ledger Bar offers a nice view of the hotel's lobby area. Normally, that wouldn't be terribly remarkable, but the 9 is the place where local celebrities come to hang out. In addition to offering the usual assortment of artisan cocktails and craft beers, the Ledger Bar occasionally hosts live music too. And you can order food from a small-bites menu as well.
