With Pratt Institute right down the way, the Emerson was clearly built to lay claim to artists and designers, but there’s space at the bar for all comers. A few esoteric paintings and a somewhat lonely-looking bust of Ralph Waldo Emerson aside, the large room is tastefully (if somewhat generically) decorated with sine-curved banquettes in front, mirrored walls, and a large area in back with a pool table. An easy-going sound system lets people do actual talking, and a generous selection of drafts, bottles, cans, and wines (running the gamut from Miller High Life to Malbec) graces the blackboard menu behind the bar. A backyard and a great happy hour with generous prices complete the picture.
