A recent jaunt in the Arts District (boy oh boy, I want to live there) found us stumbling onto this new space (formerly Cafe Metropol). As we were peering through the windows, "oooh-ing and aaah-ing" at the interior, a lady associated with the business kindly let us in to have a peak even though they were closed. I LOVED the HUGE "chalk" wall of super-neat type, by Arts
District resident and Art Center College of Design instructor, Peter
This is a really charming space and definitely styled as a "gastropub" - the menu is tailored towards those who like a bit of meat, and the kitchen is locally sourcing its produce. But the list of craft beers and the ambience is enough to get me to go back during open hours!!
Here's there Facebook page for more info, photos and reviews:
