The lowdown

Hidden behind barn doors in the back room of a sparkling new subway-tiled coffee shop is a beautiful secret: a sprawling beer-and-bourbon speakeasy with rotating draft offerings that might include Bell’s Kalamazoo stout or Empire’s British-American hybrid Amber Ale. Enjoy one under the dramatic pavilion skylights or take it to go in a growler.
