Songbird is a hidden bar in Chinatown with live music most nights, and a great all-ages crowd every night. It’s part club, part fancy cocktail bar, with room to dance when there’s a DJ or band playing, and plenty of space to do everything else when there’s not. The cocktails aren’t cheap, but at least you’re getting what you pay for - they involve ingredients like applewood smoke, black tea cordial, and atomized rose.
