Tucked away in the shadow of the Western Avenue bridge, this cozy, candlelit bar seems (at least early in the night) like a good place to write your long-awaited debut novel while nursing one of 40 eclectic, hard-to-find beers. Just don’t get too comfy, Hemingway: The rowdy, late-night rush is this establishment’s bread and butter. So stay and spot the subject of your next broken-heart tale.
