The latest project from hotel bar aficionados Mo Hodges and Brian Felley of Benjamin Cooper is the Douglas Room, a 45-seat space opening today in the newly remodeled Tilden Hotel (345 Taylor St.) in Union Square.

Hodges and Felley were both named Chronicle “Bar Stars” in 2015 for their work at Benjamin Cooper. The same quirky spirit that earned them praise before seems to be taking shape in the the Douglas Room as they open with drinks like the Tenderloin Tuxedo (Junipero Gin, Dry Vermouth, Salers Gentian, Maraschino Liqueur California Absinthe, Lemon Bitters) and the Tilden Highball London (London Dry Gin, Bonal, Cider, Cardamom, Basil, Soda).

The cocktails range in price from $10 to $12. The outfit is still building a spirits list, but coming out of the gate, the prices are going to be between $8 and $11.

A pair of former Rx Cocktail bar folks, Mark Carlisi and Keith Bracewell, are managing the front of the house staff.

Chefs Glen Schwartz (398 Brasserie) and Tim Malloy are leading lead the charge on the food side, with dishes like “tederrones” (pulled beef tendon with creme fraiche); an Italian hoagie (ham, capicola, mortadella, Genoa salami, lettuce, tomato, onion, mayonnaise); and the Whiz Wit Philly cheesesteak (caramelized onions, cheese whiz, Amoroso roll).

The snacks are $5 to $10; appetizers will be $10 to $16; and entrees are $15 to $28.

Hodges said the bar is the result of “classic, tried and true traditions of our craft and the newer expressions in an attempt to push things forward in the industry.”


The Douglas Room: Open daily; bar hours are 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. and the kitchen hours are from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m.; lunch and weekend brunch will be added at a later date.
