The bar's name is encouragement to unplug and take a break from the frenetic world outside and your own too-busy life. It's tucked around the corner from Platte Street in LoHi, and thoroughly inviting with deep red velvet chairs set across the table from blue banquettes. It feels both old school and modern and the menus reflect that, featuring classic cocktails and Coors Banquet along with creative contemporary concoctions made with ingredients such as sous-vide strawberry tequila, rum-burnt coffee beans and hibiscus flower syrup. In addition to wine, beer and cocktails there's also an array of coffee drinks as well as tea, Mexican Coke and Kombucha. You'll see inspiration from multiple cultures in the eclectic food menu, which includes lots of small plates, stuffed buns, build-it-yourself boards and charcuterie and several mains. Nice touch that the tab comes in an old paperback and final receipt in a different one.
