Candlelight mutes Dream Baby's black and white color palette, making the atmosphere more romantic than stark, while curved banquettes and cushioned stools surround marble tabletops allowing for seated conversation on all nights of the week. When the front room fills up, neighborhood regulars know to head past the first bar into a second room with more booths and a bar all its own. The main bar keeps eight beers on tap while the VIP room keeps four. And both turn out a roster of simple cocktails emphasizing local and small-batch spirits. Wanting to instill Dream Baby with rock n’ roll spirit, the owners have taken care with the soundtrack, which tends toward the classics, including a mix of 50s and 60s pop in addition to tracks like the Roy Orbison and Suicide songs that are the inspiration for the bar’s current name.
