The pint-sized Boxcar Lounge is almost always elbow-to-elbow, but makeshift banquettes, corner nooks, and stubby couches provide cozy respite on slower nights. An unprecedented happy hour and rocket-fueled sangria are major draws for the after-work crowd. Squeeze your way to the back and you can breathe (or smoke) again on the ivied patio. There, seats fill up with lightening speed, so think fast.


The Boxcar Lounge space was previously a candy store that had the distinction of being one of the neighborhood's favorite places to score heroin.
