The heavy doors with a gold "S" and "C" on their thick decorative glass windows make entering the Science Club feel like an exclusive affair. The low lighting inside this row-house speakeasy contributes to the intimate setting.
The menu is vegetarian-only and the drinks include imported beers, high-end wine, and cocktail specials. Tables are pushed aside on weekends to make room for dancing, as DJs spin a curated selection of electronic, indie rock, and hip hop. The basement bar feels like an underground speakeasy with a portrait of Einstein peering at you from the wall. Get there early to snag the only booth, acquaint yourself with the bartender, and fiddle with the microscope and books accenting the shelves—before the crowd fills in for the night.
