Downtown Stockton has a new restaurant and bar called the Deliberation Room, where guests can enjoy cocktails, beer, wine and entertainment in a 100-year-old building. The 30-foot ceilings and the accent wall made of brick holds two shelves of liquor along with about 30 different varieties of whiskey that creates a unique atmosphere. Known for their scratch made cocktails with hand squeezed juices and fresh ingredients, they also offer craft beers and wine. The Deliberation Room serves up several creative appetizers like the Asparagus Potato Skins and Potato Chip Breaded Chicken Wings, a couple of customer favorites. The full kitchen also has lunch and dinner options including Paninis, flat bread pizzas, tri-tip, and turkey dinners as well as soups and salads.
The Deliberation Room features several signature cocktails that people can savor like the refreshing “Stop and Frisk” made with gin, cucumber, lime and simple syrup garnished with a cucumber slice.
They bring the nightlife to downtown Stockton with Friday night comedy shows, paint parties, DJs, and live music on Saturdays; patrons are sure to be entertained.
There is a parking lot right next door to the restaurant and bar that is well lit and free after 6 p.m.
Owner Jacob Benguerel wants to change the conception about downtown Stockton and is off to a good start, with the Deliberation Room bringing the fun, with smooth sailing since opening a year ago.
