Ode to Babel
A cozy lounge with a living room feel, Ode to Babel is beautiful courtesy of its relaxed vibe and focus on celebrating collective identity. Cafe and co-working space by day, lounge by night, the eatery is built to accommodate the needs of its patrons. On a Saturday night, dim lights and brick walls keep the scene sultry and sexy—a perfect atmosphere for seasonal cocktails and citrusy, house-distilled gin (once featured in Vogue!) No in-your-face service here. Ode to Babel keeps it ultra-chill, with DJ’s spinning the sounds of the diaspora alongside candles and portraits of Frida Kahlo and Grace Jones. On summer nights, the cozy backyard will tempt you to linger long into the night. With drinks flowing and the moon low in the sky, fellow guests transform into connected community.
