For a casual lunch in sophisticated surroundings, Bistro 303 is an ideal choice. Around happy hour, the after-work crowds flock to 303 for cocktails and conversation and during the late-night hours a mixed, fashionable crowd swaps stories after partying at nearby dance clubs. The sizable interior leads to a diminutive brick-lined patio that’s simultaneously cozy and cosmopolitan in its seclusion.
Out-of-towners are encouraged to stop by 303 and take advantage of the knowledgeable, hospitable bartenders. They’ll give you insider tips about the city while mixing one of the bistro’s signature cocktails, or inventing a concoction based on your flavor preferences.
