When Zeb Stewart dreamed up the Hotel Delmano in Brooklyn, he was aiming “for a place that evoked Havana or Paris.” We think he succeeded.

Located within a boarded-up storefront (you enter via a side door), the cocktail lounge is done up in high-speakeasy style; distressed painted walls and ceilings, a long, curved marble bar, burnished brass fixtures and fittings, lazy ceiling fans. For more information, go to Hotel Delmano.
