Great design

There is something akin to a film set about this Euro-style venue, which takes its design motif from its location atop an electricity substation. Traffic lights, old switches and gauges, a light feature that resembles a sputnik, and a wall studded with used bottle caps all set a cool, industrial-chic tone. When it comes to drinks, aperitifs—especially absinthe—are a specialty, but the wine list, though concise, has a good selection of French and Italian quaffs. For something completely different, go through the door past the bathroom to find the Swamp Room, a dark, hidden space reminiscent of the Louisiana bayou.
