Marv Says: Piastra is a larger hotel bar found in the City Center Marriott. Next to the Gallivan Center, it’s a good place for a high end cocktail if you are around on a hot summer night. Bartender Brendan ably mixed up one of their signature drinks, The Rum Racer, for us. It is deceptively strong and incredibly sweet. We met Kevork, a gentleman in town for a convention, who was a very good conversationalist.
