Expect a raw look (concrete floor, wooden booths, exposed light bulbs) and bartenders playing country LPs on turntables behind the bar. To drink, it’s all about lesser-known whiskeys, tequilas and cheap brews. To eat? A handful of simply made (and simply delicious) tacos and tostadas courtesy of Kahan and Justin Large (sous chef at Avec), which you can order in the bar or stroll by and grab from a pickup window. The 125-seat patio is now open for the season and will be sure to be a big draw all summer.
