Hipsterism was practically invented here, so keep it low-key with plaid shirts and denims.
Jake’s Grill is an American classic – it’s old-school and proud of it. Heaped plates of hearty fare are served on the starched white tablecloths for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while the weekend brunch and happy hour are favourites with locals and hotel guests alike. Steaks and seafood are the no-nonsense options, along with the chef’s special buttermilk fried chicken, with cabbage, apple, bacon, and a blackberry sauce on the side.
Jacknife is dark and sultry, with studded leather upholstery, reclaimed wood panelling and photographs of classic American scenes on the walls. Let the good times roll with a signature cocktail – our favourites are the Johnny Utah (Jim Beam black bourbon, Bruto Americano, black cherry, vanilla and – crucially – salt), and the Forget-Me-Not (Siete Leguas tequila, white vermouth, Avèze, Campari and orange zest).
Jake’s Grill is open from 7am on weekdays (7.30am at weekends) until 11pm (extending to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays). Jackknife serves drinks from 3pm until 2am daily.
You can order to your room around the clock, although the overnight menu (from 11pm) is limited to panini and salads. You’re strongly encouraged to try the local pizza place (The Crown), which delivers to your room.
