The Rack

There’s something refreshingly different about this joint— starting with the fact that, with 22 tables the color of champagne and mahogany furniture, it’s way too upscale to be called a joint. Live music seven nights a week, above-average food, and a solidly yuppie bar scene set The Rack firmly apart from the video-games and bowling-alley genre.
