Don't bother spending your money here. The interior of the place is great. The concept of local sourcing is spot-on.......BUT, the service is pretty crappy. Which is very bad because we need places like this in the world. We've been there just a handful of times and the food is hit or miss. Sometimes it is great and sometimes it is inedible. Last night they served one of the WORST steaks I have ever eaten. The bartenders are pretty snotty and annoying as well.

King Cole Bar has a fantastic mural behind the bar by Maxwell Parrish that resembles some of the better works of Giotto, Massaccio, and Titian. That's all about all that I have good to say about the bar. Since drinks are $20+, I hoped the drinks were fantastic. After scanning the menu, I ordered a Hendricks Martini after seeing no other drink that piqued my interest. I really hoped for the best, because I was simply unimpressed by the rest of the drinks. To make matters even worse, the bartender took away the snacks in front of me before I had ordered a drink, which was rectified 20 minutes later by another waiter putting said snacks back in front of me again. The Hendricks martini that I was served was simply an embarassment; I have been made (and could have made) a better martini. There was no vermouth in the drink (Mistake #1). There was too much gin in the drink. (Mistake #2). The martini wasn't cold enough because the bar didn't have proper cubed ice to chill the drink (Mistake #3). I thought about having another libation, but neither taste nor wallet inclined me to pursue the cocktail menu any further. I'm sure Don Draper must have had a swell time having drinks in the swinging 60's, but unfortunately, the bar just panders now to the clueless tourist and hotel guest. My only advice: their snack mix is really tasty. Start with the macadamian nuts; then the cashews; then the almonds. Hopefully, you'll recoup part of the investment you made for a drink at the bar.

When this place opened, I shouted to the heavens and praised the lord... (not really but you get the picture). Nice 3-room club, plenty of space to pack in the crowd. They bring in good DJs once in a while. Very friendly and professional staff (at first). Now that they've been open for a year and their egos rushing through their veins... they are not so friendly any more. I don't get it. Why do nice clubs have to go downhill like this? I've seen a handful of clubs go through these stages... and Trinity is definitely on its way down.
