Hotel Delilah

Hotel Delilah is not really a hotel, though it does offer lodgings for vacationers. 

With an Airbnb unit upstairs and stylish restaurant down below, this playful space manages to be both a tourists' destination and a local haunt offering a pescatarian menu and fun vegan cocktails.

Inspired by the laid back vibes of Costa Rica, the restaurant design by Damon Snider transforms what was an old hair salon into a polished hodgepodge of curved reclaimed wood, sleek lighting, and pretty colours.

It's served with a side of grilled lemon and a signature malt vinegar dip.
