Diamond Lil is the sort of place we’d call a “casual cocktail bar.” It isn’t huge, but it’s vibey, and you can get a well-made drink from a bartender who doesn’t have a handlebar mustache. Or you could just drink a beer. Like we said, it's casual. So bring a date, or come with a few friends, and try to grab one of the big booths where you can catch up while you listen to a soul soundtrack and stare at some fancy light fixtures.
