Paul Wagtouicz Flowers for all Occasions

Husband-wife artist duo Erik Zajaceskowski and Rachel Nelson (Secret Project Robot, Happyfun Hideaway) stick to their schtick of arty drinking spaces with this third multiconcept joint, taking over what was a florist’s shop. The “Adrian’s Flowers” facade remains, but the 35-seat interior has been revamped: Gnarled tree branches line the bar, and the tables and benches were carved out of driftwood found in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Near-daily art events highlighting works from local artists, including Zajaceskowski, Raúl de Nieves and Dean Anthony Cercone Jr., are fueled by budget-friendly beers and house punches, such as mango sake with blueberries and kiwi, guava-shot champagne and limeade with a chili-salt rim. Scrawled on a hand-drawn menu are bar bites ranging from a grilled cheese to a trio of sloppy joes.

I love the snack plates and non-alcoholic drinks (including coffee) that this cozy place serves! It reminds me of bars in Berlin where you can order juice and hot chocolate alongside alcohol. I love the indoor tree house feeling of this place, complete with Christmas lights and plants. Not a dark hole in the wall, but a warmly lit, cozy spot to have conversations and see the person sitting across from you. Great for a first date, or an after gallery crawl, or really, just if you feel like being among people. The bartenders are super friendly and nice, and the overall vibe felt welcoming and inclusive.
