This bar is fantastic on the weekdays especially for a nice quiet happy hour. The interior is wonderful. Sleek wood slab tables and tons of open windows in nice weather make for a totally relaxed atmosphere.
Weekend crowd is a bit different, it's a tad more ""clubby"" than the usual alt/indie rock vibe during the week. Free WiFi and the bartenders are great. Warning: Rory will get you far too drunk if you're not careful. When you don't want to deal with the nonsense of Pianos, head here.
Pros: No longer known as Lotus, great interior, sweetheart staff
Cons: Weird DJs on weekends
