Art Bar Rated No 9 of The 25 Best Art Bars in America
"As anyone who has ever attended an art opening can tell you, the best way to enjoy an evening of gazing at art is with a drink in your hand. Maybe that's why gallery openings are always flowing with liquor (and therefore filled with so many strange characters). That dual activity is also an everyday occurrence at the world’s best gallery/bar hybrids. From philanthropic watering holes that support local artists to establishments decked out in high art, these places marry two of our favorite activities." - Jennifer Wood - Complex Art+Design
