Kind Regards is a little cocktail bar that becomes a bit of a scene on weekends. Come on a Friday night, and you’ll probably find a line outside with a doorman at the front. Once you make it inside, however, you can either hang out in the lounge area upstairs, or head down to the basement and make some new friends. It can definitely get crowded and a just a little bit fratty here, but there probably won’t be anyone yelling “shots,” and the bar at least looks kind of classy. It isn’t busy on weeknights, however, so feel free to meet a Bumble date here on a Tuesday. You can hang out on a couch in back, drink a cocktail, and ask what memes they like.
