Dante’s is an off-the-beaten-path speakeasy inspired by the high-fidelity listening rooms of Japan. The space is small and dark, with floor-to-ceiling curtains keeping the acoustics crisp and the mood sexy. The most prominent feature of Dante’s is its wall of vinyl records numbering in the tens of thousands (the personal collection of the bar’s music director, DJ Rich Medina). Come to Dante’s for great cocktails and exceptional music in a more laid-back, loungey setting.
