Bar looks and feels like a cross between a Parisian brasserie and your mother's living room. The atmosphere is comfortable, with framed pictures on a brick wall and chairs that have been reupholstered in a variety of threadbare fabrics. Yet the gilded mirrors behind the bar and a set of French windows across the front add a slightly dignified air. Early in the evening you won't feel out of place sitting alone with your drink while you read, watch the news on TV, or eavesdrop on a few local visitors. Later on a relaxed, vaguely hip crowd sits easily at the candlelit tables and chatters above the music. It's what the French would call a boîte, and what we would call, well, a bar.
