This amber-tinted lounge is certainly chic and a bit upscale, but somehow lacks the stuffiness usually associated with those spots. Its restaurant-worthy menu is enhanced by the attentive, conversational staff and colorful paintings by local artists that dot the bars exposed-brick walls. The result is a laid-back atmosphere that draws an eclectic mix of artists and nine-to-fivers.
