This venue is closed.

It lacks leather banquettes and attitude at the door, but this tiny tavern is quite an attraction. On any given night, the little wooden cocktail tables are packed with locals seeking refuge from haughtier drinking establishments nearby. The cordial bartenders serve up pints of beer and generous $8 martinis to an attractive after-work crowd that cozies up to the etched oak-and-brass bar during the week. On the weekends, a fashionable coterie packs the place to standing-room capacity, making it the busiest spot in the area—and leaving competitors' velvet ropes to do little more than swing in the wind.


Yes, Liquor Store Bar was, in fact, once a liquor store. What's more, it's the only preserved landmark townhouse in the city zoned for the sale and distribution of alcohol.
