When this place was the Note, the focus was on the bands on stage. Now, of course, those bands are gone, and the focus is on nothing but the drinks in the glasses—and the fact that you can get them until 4am. The dark bar is roomy and a little divey, and it’s essentially as low-key and basic as a bar can get. And that’s exactly what this rapidly yuppifying neighborhood needs.
