The Davenport Lounge

This Richmond Avenue lounge has been a fixture of the old Sandman building for years, with its cozy interior and mid-century furniture providing a warm and welcoming environment. As the glass-shaped door handle belies, this is a go-to spot for martinis, with a specialty menu boasting nearly 50 different variations on the beloved drink and a lengthy list of vodkas. But that’s not the only spirit in good supply here, as The Davenport has a hearty Scotch collection that stretches the length of the bar. This combination of fruity vodka concoctions and intriguing whiskeys provides a yin-and-yang balance to the dim room and its often rock-oriented soundtrack. On a slower night it’s a pleasant place to tuck away for a few rounds, but the small space crowds quickly.
