The best part of our meal was learning about how the dishes were created by the chefs behind the counter. The cozy bar, expansive vinyl collection and food were all great. But the conversation made it even better.

Found Bastion on the recommendation of our AirbnB host. The bar was not warm nor welcoming, and it felt a lot like walking into a dark, loud houseparty full of pretentious people pretending to like each other. Cocktail menu is small, but the drinks were...More
