Taverna Costera is a few different concepts in one. The ground floor is a Mediterranean restaurant with a cocktail bar and patio, while Dragon's Alley (in the same space, but hidden on the other side of a tight corner) serves an odd but effective combination of fresh-brewed coffee and Asian street food. The rooftop deck is a beautiful, casual space with string lights, lounge furniture, and its own dedicated bar. It's usually open at night for special events (comedy, poetry slams, live bands, that kind of thing), although a weekly Wednesday happy hour runs 3-6 pm. Not a lot of landmarks to see, but the views are a nice change of pace for the Arts District.
