Revolver’s comic book-style exterior and display window with cardboard cutouts of superheroes, action figures, and old issues of Batman don’t exactly scream cocktail bar. But inside you'll find a dark, cozy space with a long bar and vintage touches like leather booths, marbled checkerboard floor tiles, and an ornate tin ceiling. And whether you show up for a DJ set or the jams are curated by Spotify, the music is great—usually a mix of throwback R&B hits and modern hip-hop. The atmosphere is more relaxed on weeknights, ideal for a low-key hang while sipping on their namesake drink, a balanced take on an Old Fashioned with coffee liqueur. But on the weekend the space takes on a clubbier atmosphere.
