You have to give up your phone to get into this speakeasy behind Scopa. If you’re into that kind of thing, you will definitely like Old Lightning, which is inexplicably tiki themed and manned by helpful bartenders who really seem to love what they do. It’s kind of a pain to get in - you have to email them and wait for someone to reach out to you about a reservation. But once you’re in, you feel like you’re part of a club. And you can spend the next day talking about how great it felt to “just unplug.”
