A phrase like “steampunk bar” will either pique your interest or make you cringe, but that’s how this spot wants to play it. Truth be told, though, the Way Station is simply a solid neighborhood bar in a neighborhood short on them. The beer selection is slim, but an array of themed-cocktails makes up for it. The bar is filled out with steakhouse-style red-leather booths, while the walls are adorned with all manner of mechanical curios: fanciful lamps that don’t work, archaic clocks that improbably do, a two-headed ceiling fan slowly patrolling the room. Tucked near the back is a small pie-slice-shaped stage (with a disco ball in lieu of a cherry), which hosts book readings, live music, and monthly burlesque shows. And as an Easter egg for Dr. Who fans, there’s a glowing “TARDIS” time machine near the bar, but it will only transport you to the restroom.
