Open early in the morning until late in the evening, VBar St. Marks is a quaint café and a trendy nightspot in one. Wine and beer selections co-exist along the bar with an old-style espresso machine, and the high-backed chairs play host to everyone from laptop-toting freelance bloggers to scruffy hipsters. Décor is sparse; there’s a Tattoo You cover prominently displayed amidst the exposed brick, large windows, and dark lacquered tables. The menu shifts from coffee and pastries to Sardinian-inspired lunch, brunch, and dinner options.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
