“The Livery has a lot to offer, even beyond its bar. The building is a must-see with exposed brickwork and multiple levels. The art scene is prominent at The Livery with local art and photography; and live music. OHHH, and the beer is great, especially if you're looking for unique combinations or seasonal specialties. ”
