Location is usually the first thing you think of when booking a hotel. If you’re a tourist, you’ll be walking distance to certain attractions and if you’re a foodie, you’ll be close to some of the city’s best dining spots. But if you love cocktails and dancing, there’s no need to stray far from the lobby. Hotel bars are becoming some of the most stylish cocktail destinations, and you don’t even need a reservation to experience the fun. From lavish, dark lounges to breathtaking rooftop views, here are 10 of the best hotel bars in America.
