But even if you're on a tight budget you can still enjoy the decor -- you can do as we did this visit and just drop into the lounge for a couple cocktails. They are a bit pricey ($12 to $18 for our choices), and you'll want to be a at least moderately dressy, even in the lounge. But if you're in the mood for an upscale experience, Canlis delivers.
