Broadway Bar, which preceded much of the Downtown nightlife scene when it debuted in 2005, was a little overdue for a full makeover, despite sporting two bars on two floors. Relaunching officially on June 19, the bones are still the same, but the aesthetic is an all around refresh from the glamorous 1920's vibe of the original, with a cleaner, more streamlined feel that doesn't feel as over-the-top.
Meanwhile, the gleaming neon sign remains up front, a beacon to evening revelers in the heart of Downtown. Don't worry, not only is it still a fun place to drink, the bar has a sparkling new cocktail menu from 213 Beverage Director Eric Alperin (who also co-owns The Varnish) and Broadway Bar's own, Ozborne Williams.
