Love this podium !! We need to build more of these old classy styled podiums with the fancy top trimmings in this city. The U and the backstage condos were only a few that I know that have attempted to create something quite similar.
I think that Boxcar is an especially good fit for the project, since it very successfully transitions from a cafe to a bar in the evening hours (at least in the other three locations).
For the Financial District, where a lot of places empty out after work, it's good to get a more round-the-clock type of place. You can still go and have a cup of coffee at 8 or 10 pm.
Can confirm that the coffee is very good as well. They frequently carry George Howell roasts, which I'm a big fan of.
