Seemingly the brainchild of a forward-thinking ’70s lumberjack with a master’s in interior design, Doug Fir’s take on the log cabin is stylish and inviting. The lounge is a balance of comfy leather benches, dimly lit booths and strange sculptures (glass moose head?). The real attraction is the live shows going on downstairs, but it’s equally easy to pass a few hours talking by the fireplace or smoking by the fire pit. It’s a great date bar, with plenty of dim corners for discreet canoodling.
