The inviting atmosphere at this former liquor store (the sign is still up) comes from quietly cool world-beat dance music, rotating exhibits mounted on artfully distressed walls and a tented garden that’s great in warm weather. Mojitos by the pitcher (yow!) are memorable, as is the first-rate brunch.
