The crew behind Green Eye and Underbar purchased the former Bar Vertigo space and gave it a bit of a face-lift, and, seemingly overnight, it’s already packed. The owners salvaged the Art Deco back bar from the old Lava Lounge space and somehow made it fit in these new narrow digs, but the real eye candy here is the never-ending parade of tattooed hipsters who seem to travel in packs to this bar family’s watering holes.
