Fodor's Review

The Violet Hour channels a Prohibition-era speakeasy—an unmarked door in the boarded-up facade leads to a mysterious, curtained hallway. Inside, twinkling crystal chandeliers cast a glow on cornflower-blue walls, and extremely high-backed blue leather chairs encourage intimate conversations. Add to that pricey but flawlessly executed cocktails and a sign discouraging cell-phone use, and it's our idea of nightlife heaven.
