A solid option perfect for literally everyone who finds themselves on Congress. Located in the only standalone bar that actually feels historic in our otherwise-modern looking downtown, The Townsend feels classy enough for a date, or to catch up with an old friend to prove how well you’re doing after all these years. It’s a bit more expensive than most other bars in the area - but that extra money will certainly buy you a more upscale experience than anywhere else in the surrounding Dirty 6th vicinity.
