Graffiti Bar Is One of ‘America’s Best Outdoor Bars’

Just follow the giant blinking spray can.

Unless owner Michael Schulson has some kiddie pools iced down for folks to wade in out behind Sampan, this news will go over today like a tall glass of boiling beer: Travel + Leisure listed his Graffiti Bar as one “America's Best Outdoor Bars.” The magazine takes note of the bar’s urban scheme, saying the “look is a little rough,” but vouches for the cocktails and the $2 happy hour satays. With any luck rain in tonight’s forecast will not only put the bar’s clear ceiling to good use, but provide a little relief from this heat. [T+L]
