Remember when you wanted sleek and sophisticated bars like the ones in bigger, cooler cities? Michael Cornthwaite did, too, and opened the Downtown Cocktail Room. And remember when DCR wasn’t enough? He heard you and opened more grown-up bars, including his most recent conceptual masterpiece, the Scullery at the Ogden. He and his wife Jennifer also heard your frequent pleas for a coffeehouse, and didn’t miss a Beat. What’s left for an evolving Downtown—saving the Huntridge? Yeah, he’s working on that, too.
