Acme Social Club
Acme Social Club takes folks on a tour of bygone era. Stool seats, table tops, pillars, and even the bar are made of weathered wood. Exposed lightbulbs dangle from a colorful tin-tiled ceiling. A bone-warming fire crackles in a central, cylindrical fireplace, and even the accumulated kitsch on its mantle belongs to a romanticized past of cowboys and woodworkers.
The craft cocktail menu strikes a similarly vintage tone. For purists, it hits the high notes with a classic selection, but there are plenty of unfamiliar recipes to hold your attention, such as the Berried Alive—rye-muddled strawberry and lemon-basil simple syrup. Chefs follow suit, striking a balance between the familiar and the surprisingly modern. The main theme of the menu has to do with upgrading traditional American favorites with delightful twists. They layer bowls of mac 'n' cheese, for example, with bacon jam, or slowly roast pork ribs in a guava barbecue sauce.
The outdoor patio feels like a throwback in its own right, with a fireplace tucked between brick walls and stone-framed gardens. A slatted awning sends only dappled sunlight through to the patio, making it an ideal place to eat when the sun is beating down or when it's raining actual cats and dogs.
