Other than Chinese food in the I.D., Christmas Day and Eve means movies for many of us. After the jump. there's a full list of what hotel bars are open within a quick hop of downtown theaters, for those of us wanting to celebrate with Daniel Day Lewis and Robert Downey Jr.
Also, it was a bitch to put this list together, having to be transferred and put on hold a million times to come up with practically bupkis. It's Christmas, and you're a hotel in a city. You should know your holiday hours. Seriously.Ruth's Chris Lounge in the Grand Hyatt (721 Pine St.) open from 12:00 noon until 10:00pm
Oliver's Lounge in the Mayflower Park Hotel (405 Olive Way) is open from11:30pm until 1:00am. (**May close early if it's slow). Also Andaluca, the hotel's main restaurant, will be open for breakfast from 7:00am until 11:00am and open for dinner and drinks 3:00-9:00pm.
The Daily Grill in the Sheraton complex (629 Pike St., right across from the Meridian 16) will open 6:00am until 9:00pm.
The following hotel bars and restaurants are, sadly, closed on Christmas: Lola in the Hotel Andra, Red Fin in Hotel Max, Dragonfish in the Paramount Hotel, and Von's, which has already been proven to be a fine aperitif for Up In the Air.
