“Papa” would fit right in with the walls piled high with books, notebooks and even typewriters here, and he’d surely savor the abundance of cocktails dubbed “The Old Man and the Sea,” “Death in the Afternoon” … well, you get it. This place appeals to a very diverse crowd, and early arrivals will find most bartenders are happy to concoct a drink to suit your taste. Come early (it doesn’t open until 9 pm) to snag a booths or sofa when local bands take the stage; DJs are on duty other nights.
