Mabel’s on Main
At least in our cultural imagination, mid-century America was a place of grandeur and decadence—a throwback to the Jazz Age, but with all the trappings of modernity. Whether that place ever truly existed is debatable, but one thing isn’t: Mabel’s on Main has captured all of its intoxicating charms. From handcrafted cocktails to intricately embossed tin ceilings, Mabel’s leaves no detail unaccounted for in its reconstruction of a lost era. Indeed, it’s hard not to feel like a character from Mad Men while sipping on a classic gin martini or any of the bar’s other signature cocktails. Meanwhile, the rest of the menu betrays more contemporary influences with a focus on flatbread pizzas, gourmet burgers, and artisanal cheese platters. If you’re really interested in time travel, book a night in the private room. This secret lounge painstakingly recreates all the elegance of the 1950s' most exclusive clubs with its customized menu, personal concierge service, and roving Elvis impersonators.
