On Dumbo's somewhat slummo side is a surprisingly mellow bar with soft lighting and a relaxed, country atmosphere. (Sit on the bench outside for a few minutes and you’ll see that the bar’s surroundings are neither relaxed nor country.) The artist-owner is a self-proclaimed oenophile who proudly offers more than a dozen wines by the glass and fruity sangria with a kick. If you expect more of a local meeting place than a colorful pickup scene, then you’ll be satisfied.
