Owner: Jesse Hayes
Atmosphere: Coffee shop and lunch venue by day; polished hipster bar by night. Industrial chic mixed with clubby library feel.
Clientele: Professionals and students during the day. Evenings attract couples and night owls keen on the craft cocktail scene.
Best seat in the house: Wooden bar in front of plate glass windows that open onto street and sidewalk. Booths across from the bar provide privacy and 180-degree views of venue.
Bragging rights: “We’re serving high end mixology and specialty coffee, but we’re not an elitist place,” says Hayes. Archive also features a downstairs speakeasy. Hayes is very hush-hush about the space, which, as per speakeasy etiquette, is invitation only.
