Why It's Hot: New this June, it's a cafe, workspace and museum for the Long Now Foundation by day, and a bar and salon to stimulate discussion and community, helmed by bar manager Jennifer Colliau of Small Hand Foods, by night.
Must-Drink: Out of 8 cocktail sections, including a martini and a daiquiri menu, we recommend Drinking Around the World, which honors drinking traditions from various countries. Try ponche de granada, a tradition around Mexico of aging fresh pomegranate juice and sugar with either tequila or mezcal. It's served at room temperature with spiced pecans.
Insider Tip: The Foundation's much-discussed, Swiss-designed chalkboard robots will soon be assembled. One of them will write on a large chalkboard hanging next to the bar. The other will assist behind the bar(!).
