More suited to chilling out than carousing, this quiet neighborhood bar plays prog-rock and is furnished with bookcases overflowing with poetry books, with an emphasis on the Beat era. Decorated in a vivid red-and-black color scheme, it's perched in a tiny fourth-floor garret that's reachable only via a narrow outdoor spiral staircase.
