Bar Type(s)

Some people tackle a midday slump with Starbucks; others prefer The Clutch City Buzz, a cold brew–based tequila creation that drinks strangely similar to a seasonal stout, right down to the foamy head, but with a dash of green-mint bitters for a Grasshopper-sweet touch. If you’re too comfy perched in your booth at this quiet lounge atop busy Finn Hall, the bar staff will happily order your food from one of the hall’s purveyors—we suggest Yong’s kimchi tots and Korean-fried-chicken bowl—and bring it to you. An hour spent here makes for a great workday respite if ever there was one.
