Right about now I imagine a bunch of downtown salarymen thinking, "what a perfect place to bring an out-of-town client for a deal-cinching cocktail." and it will be good for all those things.
But screw that, its time to be a little selfish and think about yourself. Metropole is a good spot just to hang out and chill with some friends.
You know, its been a pretty wild couple weeks. Over the last year all the good news has been in OTR and now twice over the last two weeks we've had two amazing bars open downtown. Metropole is sophisticated to Igby's drama, is one better than the other? I'd say each does exactly what it was meant to with no overlap. If you can't find the bar you want now, it must not exist.
