A one-stop for the discerning hipster. Downstairs, funky decor and a tasty, veggie-friendly menu are a solid foundation for chatter and people-watching; upstairs, catch national indie acts, eclectic DJ nights, and special events. Weekly pub quiz packs the house.
CP REVIEW: A bar that serves well-designed retro chic with its whiskey and beer, Brillobox is (for now) the cool place to be. The menu isn't lengthy, but it's broad: Choose from bar staples or specialties like the vegetarian Gouda Buddha Reuben. Careful arrangements -- of objects and ingredients -- add up to casual sophistication. [Sept. 7, 2006]
