This inconspicuous afterhours spot is open on select nights of the week only. Don't bother looking for a sign -- there isn't one. Instead, look for a doorway concealed by worn concert posters. Step inside to find an intimate space enveloped from floor to ceiling in myriad shades of wood. Owners Mike Bisbee and Mike Kaulentis envision the low-key lounge as a place for their friends to hang when they want to keep the their night out going without the strobe lights and banging club music. Just how similar is this spot to its nearby siblings? Stay boasts a 4 a.m. license, just like RiNo, but unlike Manor, bottle service isn't required to settle into the chocolate-hued leather couches lining the back of the space. Besides a lineup of bottled beer, bartenders will work their magic with fruity cocktails inspired by mixers from Belgian juice company Looza.
