Is there anyplace open (including perhaps a hotel bar that isn't advertised on their site) within a short walk, to get a nightcap before zzzzztime?

It was not an elegant solution, but the last time this situation presented itself I just got a couple of drinks on the flight and took them off in my carry on. At least I could get there and relax after check in with a glass of wine. Worked pretty well in my case because the hotel was quite nice and there was nothing around.
