When you ask the bartender for something he’s proud of and he gives you a negroni, that’s a good sign.
They describe themselves as a “Midnight Gallery and Bar,” and this is Limbo. On the night we visited, they had a display of fine art photography on display and some excellent DJ music (courtesy of @missbadkiss) to drive the vibe. Though the negroni definitely hit the spot, it’s also perfectly fine to enjoy the music, the art, and the company with something as simple as a bottle of local beer. It’s a bar that people seem to live in. And the staff act a little like you’re all just visitors in their living room. Case in point: a bartender was continuously playing rounds of cards with a guest at the bar. If that’s your speed, this bar is a must.
