Time Out says

Tonic Room isn't gone, it's just rebranded and revamped its offerings. Golden Dagger is combonation coffee bar and music venue, with indoor seating and a patio for daytime hangs as well as a small stage to host live music in the evenings. You'll find drip coffee, espresso and cold brew from local roaster Skylight Coffee, as well as beer, wine, cocktails and a long list of non-alcoholic beverages (including kombucha, mocktails and NA craft beer). While overhauling the space, owner Donnie Biggins frew inspiration from the artist-friendly cafes of Greenwich Village in the ’60s, creating a place where creatives can get together, enjoy a drink and share their work.
