Hotel Delmano is a great little bar tucked into the corner of Berry and N 9th Street in Williamsburg. It has a New Orleans inspired parlor feel to it, and some seriously clever mixologists behind the bar. A variety of unique flavors and infused liqours contribute to their one-of-a-kind cocktail menu. With infusions of pineapple, thyme, chipotle, and tarragon, and mix-ins like fig jam, rose water, and beet syrup these cocktails are strong and not for the faint of heart. My personal favorites are the Alibi (pineapple infused tequila, cinnamon-vanilla syrup, fresh lime, and molé bitters), Castaneda (tarragon infused tequila, alpine liqueur, orange curaçao, and fresh lemon juice), and the simple and always satisfying 3 Amigos (tecate, tequila, sangria).
They also offer an impressive raw bar with oysters, crab legs, and clams along with some larger plates and charcuterie. In addition to their wide variety of fair, once the warm weather rolls in Hotel Delmano opens up their outdoor seating! This is a solid people (and dog) watching spot, and all-around great local spot to kick back and bask in the sunshine with a kickass cocktail and some friends.
