Dinner, drinks, and dessert are the necessary ingredients for any date night, but it’s time to raise the bar. Add epic appetizers and ambiance and your date night just got much more exciting. Hop in the car and head to Hawley for a night to remember at Glass: Wine. Bar. Kitchen. Yes. Yes. Yes.
Located within Ledges Hotel, Glass opened in 2011 and is situated along river gorge waterfalls. The panoramic dining room offers a stunning view and makes for a picture-perfect evening. You can even get a closer look by heading out to the multi-tiered decks overlooking the gorge. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed by this view. Enjoy your meal in the dining room or cozy up over at the bar. You can’t go wrong either way!
Onto the most important part of the night – the food. If you’re like me and have a habit of eating off of other people’s plates, you’ve come to the right place. Choose from a variety of “small plates” and try a little bit of everything. Remember, sharing is caring! If you’re not familiar with the small plates trend, the waitstaff will steer you in the right direction to make sure you leave happy, not hungry. If you’re struggling to decide on which side plate to add to your meal, you can’t go wrong with Fried Brussel Sprouts and Hawley Fries. (Seriously, what is in the “Silk Mill” seasoning they put on those fries?!) Take my advice, don’t leave Glass without ordering a Charcuterie board. Simply choose your favorite meats and cheeses and bam, an awesome spread of snacks will appear on your table. It even came with pickles! Glass offers an extensive drink menu, with a serious selection of beers, wine, and specialty cocktails that changes seasonally.
Plan to ring in 2018 at Glass’ New Year’s Eve Extravaganza. With hors d’oeuvres, champagne, a tasting menu, and live music, there’s no better way to start your year. Both early and late seatings are available, so call ASAP to make a reservation. “Like” Glass on Facebook to be the first to know about other special events.
Glass is open Wednesday through Sunday at 4:30 p.m., with live entertainment on Fridays from 8-11 p.m. You can even conveniently make a reservation online to ensure that your table is ready when you arrive. Up the ante your next night out and head to Glass. Your date will thank you!
