We Love A Good Cafe To Bar Transition—And Bar Beau Does Not Disappoint

Surrounded by vintage knick-knacks, Reunion is guaranteed to be the pick-me-up you both needed tonight (*shakes fist at subway*). With an aesthetic that would easily do Pinterest proud and a casual bistro-like setting, this restaurant gives its Mediterranean roots some cozy, prismatic love, offering everything from oven-roasted batata and mujadara with pomegranate and pumpkin seeds to Jerusalem watermelon and fried halloumi.

Next, go from bright colors to muted hues at Bar Beau. With a simple, but mesmerizing presence (from the olive green accents to the pink backroom glow) and Japanese influence, this place literally transforms from a daytime cafe to a nighttime getaway stacked with equally impressive specialty drinks, like the gin/rhubarb/yogurt-based Tonka Truck and the smoked cedar/honey/black garlic-based Papa’s Toque. And, if you’re a movie/SNL buff, you’ll no doubt appreciate the Wayne’s World nod with their sweet and spicy cocktail: (and her name was) Cassandra.
