Four Corners Tavern Group (which owns Schoolyard, Kirkwood, Gaslight and others) has taken things up a notch at its latest stylish sports bar, its first in Old Town. A cut-out roof brings sunlight from an open roof deck down to an airy first floor, abuzz with young money and the occasional skillet cookie (a Four Corners signature). Summer doesn’t last forever, so a sliding roof seals the party like an atrium when the chill comes in.
