Imagine that your favorite gourmet-deli lunch spot turned into a bar at night, and you’d have a handle on Printon 56. The long, narrow storefront, one doorway over from the deli portion of the business, serves coffee and hosts a juice bar. At 4pm, it morphs into a font of alcohol (seven beers on tap, full liquor bar) with two active plasma TVs above the bar—and at 8pm, it closes for the night, though the lounge is available for private rental. Patrons are not just indigenous after-work suits; young couples and downtown types are just as much in evidence.
