A friendly late-night joint is hard to find. One where off-duty cops, dolled-up hipsters and sporty types drink together in harmony, like this one, is even harder. Inside, the exposed-brick wall and candlelit bar make for a cozy atmosphere. Add some fine picks by the DJ and two of the nicest bartenders around, and you’ll definitely be back for seconds.
