Birch’s Lowertown Barrel House
Birch’s Lowertown lower-level lounge!
A few short weeks after the opening of Birch’s Lowertown Taproom, Birch’s has unleashed a very pleasant surprise to the space: an underground, Studio 54 style piano bar and lounge.
The swanky space, which has a separate downstairs entrance, is open Thursdays from 7 p.m. until close and Fridays and Saturdays from 8pm to close.
The space is opulent and cozy, with lots of crushed velvet, exposed stone walls, cushy booths and banquettes and a lovely piano bar with seating surrounding it. There is a live, cabaret-style music most nights, including Thursday & Friday performances every week featuring Erin Schwab and Jay Fuchs. Guests are encouraged to request songs, or they can just sit back and enjoy the show.
In the spirit of an underground bar, Birch’s will be handing out black business cards with a secret code that you can use to reserve seating during the weekend nights.
The space is also available for private events.
Birch’s food menu is available downstairs from 8 to 10 p.m., and there’s a full bar with craft cocktails. There’s an emphasis on whiskey, with more than 90 varieties to choose from.
