Allegory @ Eaton Hotel

Allegory is named for stories and artworks that have double, often deeper meanings. The bar is positioned directly behind Eaton Workshop's Radical Library and seating area. Several of the cocktails on the menu are titled after some of the works available for reading. "Open Veins" with genever, sweet vermouth, orange curacao, acai berry grenadine, lemon, and egg white ($16) is named for Eduardo Galeano's book, Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent.

Allegory is dimly lit and windowless but has murals splashed on the walls from D.C.-based artist Erik Thor-Sandberg for contrast. According to the hotel, the artwork is a tribute to Ruby Bridges—the first African-American child to desegregate the all-white William Frantz Elementary School in Louisiana in 1960.
