Codependent Cocktails + Coffee
Attached to The Independent downtown (AKA “The Jenga Building”), Codependent is a coffee shop and cocktail bar that serves as a great place to get some work done during the day, as long as you’re done by 4pm (or earlier on the weekends). Because after that, there's a “no laptop policy.” Food here consists of small bites like charcuterie boards and pastries, and the drinks—both cocktails and coffee—are worth a little detour. Come here to get some work done during the day, then order an espresso martini once evening strikes to keep the night going.
