We stopped in to The Violet Hour last night for a swanky cocktail experience. Formerly Del Toro (and Mod before that), we were struck by how this space has been utterly transformed yet again... The flowing rooms and unadorned walls let the lines of tall-back leather chairs, ottomans, and white crown molding and bar shelving stand out - and the colors/light from the fireplaces and crystal chandeliers give the rooms a sincere ambience. We didn't have our camera, but found this photo tour on Metromix (trust us, it's even better on a dimly lit night with cocktail in hand).
The Violet Hour's color scheme and sidecar or manhattan-drinking vibe reminded us a bit of The Peacock bar in Austin, TX. Whether you've been in person or this is your first glimpse, how do you feel about the blue, moody decor?
