Drinks at The Commoner

Last weekend, we went to see Fun Home. It was about an hour and forty minute long show with no intermission. This means it was over by 3:45 pm. Unfortunately we weren't meeting our friends for dinner until 5:30 pm. What to do? It was a nice, warm day, so we walked around a bit and sat in a park but it was getting quite breezy and looked like it might rain. So we started using our phones to look for somewhere near dinner to hang out. Some places we thought of didn't open until 5 pm. But then we remembered The Commoner in the Klimpton Hotel Monaco, which happened to be right next to dinner, so went there for a pre-dinner beverage.
Happily, there is a lower bar area, which was still a bit high for me but not too bad. So we sat there and I enjoyed a glass of Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc while SP enjoyed a cocktail called Just Entitled. I don't remember what was in it other than gin and a garnish of orange peel and thyme sprigs. I was surprised how much I liked it since it is a gin drink.

We didn't eat at The Commoner, just a drink, but the bartenders were friendly, the cocktail tasty, the Pirates game was on, and the bathrooms were nice & spacious & clean! A good place for a drink/to kill some time. Maybe next time we'll eat there.
