HEAD OVER TO MURRAY STREET COFFEE
A favorite among the locals, Murray Street Coffee Shop offers a homey atmosphere for reading a book, catching up with friends or simply enjoying one of their delicious cups of coffee. The rich mocha colors and cozy décor of the building makes it like being invited in to someone’s home. The shop is small and intimate, with two upstairs overhangs for additional chill space. On every other Thursday night, you can sip a cappuccino while jamming out to a live DJ set, and on any night you can find studious scholars, people on first dates and lively gamers.

DANCE AT TRUTH AND ALIBI
Upon first glance, this speakeasy looks like a miniature, old-fashioned candy store. By night, a secret door opens up into a gothic style cocktail bar.

The club features upbeat DJs, colorful chandeliers and regally adorned furniture for those ordering bottle service.
