Located inside The Hotel Hanford, Savoy Restaurant & Lounge cultivates a posh, inviting atmosphere with bronze-leather club chairs flanked by plum-colored satin pillows and ambient-lit dining quarters. In the mornings, eggs, fruit-speckled pancakes, and upscale breakfast staples fuel hotel patrons and passers-through for the day ahead. In the evening, plates brim with upscale American cuisine complemented by scores of wines from Tuscany, Sonoma, and Spain, whose disparate life stories make for interesting conversation pieces when there are no humans interested in talking. While enjoying diverse wines cozied up in chic deep-purple chairs at the full bar, patrons dig into dishes of butternut squash ravioli with bacon, almonds, and pecorino cheese as they bask in their environs' rich, metallic tones.

The epicurean engineers at Durty Nelly's rouse weary palates with dishes from an extensive menu of Irish classics and frothy brews. Cheer on quarreling sausages in the bangers and mash plate ($10.95), or embrace the corned beef and cabbage dish ($12.95), which is more tender and juicy than a hug from the Kool-Aid Man. The fish 'n' chips platter beer-batters Icelandic cod filets and serves them with a heap of fries and coleslaw ($12.95), and 25 handhelds such as the corned beef sandwich ($7.75+) and the avocado, bacon, and cheese burger ($8.95) compete for attention with 10 draught beers under the luminous glow of big-game beaming flat-screen TVs. To complement each bite, Durty Nelly's provides a slew of weekly entertainment and invites bar farers to sip on discounted brews during happy hours Monday–Thursday.

Ibiza Bartending Academy's resident bartenders steer students through mixology classes designed for beginners and experienced cocktail constructors alike. Scratch mixology’s surface using highball glasses as makeshift augers in a beginner-friendly four-hour bartending class. Students learn the basics of bartending before trying their hand behind a real bar, which requires none of the advanced miming degrees required to mix behind an imaginary bar. Ibiza offers a four-week certification course for those with professional ambitions or more established spirit-slinging skills. Cocktail-conjuring crafts are honed through either four four-hour sessions or eight two-hour sessions. At the end of the course, pupils will have the opportunity to take the speed and accuracy exams and become a fully certified bartender.
