Bring a date (or your grandparents) and sink into the inviting and timelessly opulent lounge inside the classic Sorrento Hotel. Many things here are tasseled and gilded and overstuffed; lampshades are beaded, surfaces gleam, ottomans create almond-shaped islands of squishy leather. The snacks are elegant (and served until 11 pm), and the drinks are made with care.
