This gallery moonlights as a lounge, where a sleek, civilized crowd can booze amid the work of up-and-coming artists. You won’t find any hard liquor (keeps out the louts), but a (fittingly) well-curated selection of New World wines by the glass includes a sweet, sparkling Brachetto. Those more given to hops can choose among 50 microbrews (ten taps, 40 bottles), including light, Belgian Delirium Tremens, while mulling over painter Cortney Hedlund’s socio-political tableaux.
