The massive reincarnation of Lakeview’s Bottom Lounge includes a live-music room that books acts ranging from Senses Fail to Anberlin. Change levels to change the vibe: Upstairs, the Volcano Room’s a rum palace, with 80 varieties on offer; downstairs, the main-floor restaurant and bar features a 100-bottle-strong beer list. See you on the killer rooftop deck in summer.
