No, there isn't a sign, and the dim light peering through the small, street-facing window suggests that some exclusive form of nightlife is taking place inside. But despite its low profile, No Malice has a diverse, unpretentious fan base of young downtowners. A few older regulars at the bar sip from the impressive selection of bottled beer, and when the crowds are minimal, the antique high-backed chairs and fireplace attract couples and small groups who value conversation over preening. When the troops arrive around 10pm—and the DJ starts spinning hip-hop and R&B—the chatter level sends romancers elsewhere, leaving the spacious bar and outdoor covered patio to serious carousers only.
