After construction of a new Brown Line station displaced its original location, Tiny Lounge relocated a mile north. Make no mistake: The cocktail lounge isn’t what it used to be. It’s bigger now, and gone is the old-school decor—this place is slick and a little mod. But sitting here with a Sazerac or a sidecar (both impeccably crafted) is so undeniably pleasant that it’s hard not to believe that the changes were for the better.
