Time Out says

This low-lit lounge is nothing like motels we’ve checked into, but we dig the throwback classic cocktails, the “room service” comfort food menu, the unpretentious staff and eclectic jukebox in lieu of a DJ turning it into a club. In warmer months, a massive outdoor patio is simple and sparse, with a few candles for light.
