Best Bar That Also Looks Like Your Living Room 

The Layover

The lounge is back, guys. Or maybe it never left. Either way, hard edges, weird lighting, and ultra-modern decor have all been replaced by gently worn couches and throw pillows, and it's now totally acceptable — cool, even — to spend your evening in an establishment that more or less looks like your own home. This, if you haven't realized, is fantastic news. And no local bar takes the comfy-chic aesthetic more seriously than The Layover, whose owners reportedly found its furnishings not at chichi furniture stores but at flea markets and antique shops, intentionally opting for a vintage, cozy vibe that feels more like your eccentric aunt's house than the hip, young-skewing, perennially trendy bar that it is. The furniture's mismatched, most of the art on the walls is for sale — and the crowd, like the space itself, anything but pretentious.
