For centuries, the bar and tavern have offered weary customers a place to retreat from the elements and end a hard day of labor. The Refuge Bar & Bistro is designed to transport visitors to a better place.
The refuge has a subtly splendid style, one that echoes an earlier time. Its dark wood, ornate ceiling, luscious antique-y wallpaper, mahogany bar stained deep with Angostura bitters, and intimate ambiance provide the chance for a transformative moment. Here, your life just might change.
You’ll know you’re in for a very good drink, a fact made evident by the massive bottle shelf behind the elongated bar, packed with a vast array of spirits, liqueurs and mixers, microbrew beers, boutique wines, along with old bar bottles and bar equipment. When sitting at the bar by yourself or with a friend—in the thick of the action, the way Refuge is best experienced—gazing at the choices, it’s obvious that this is a place in which the creation of cocktails is serious business.
