Taking inspiration from the area’s historic Chinese pharmacies, The Keefer Bar serves up its list of remedies and cures each night as part of its apothecary theme, helped by its dark and narrow setting. Live music and late opening hours, however, see this venue stay vibrant and busy each night of the week as guests enjoy the house-made tinctures, mixes and unique ingredients whether they’re crowding round the bar or retreating to the patio with its fire pits in winter. Bar snacks, dim sum, small plates and a dessert of Japanese cream puffs round off proceedings.
