Sip & Summon the Spirits at Arcana
This underground bar and lounge brings together craft cocktails, tarot readings and life music on most weekends.
This underground bar and lounge describes itself "New Orleans-meets-Prague Art Nouveau" and serves craft cocktails, spirits, wine, craft beer and—wait for it—tarot cards. True to its name, the theme of this bar is all things arcane. They offer up a menu of rotating cocktails (all around $10) with mysterious and whimsical names. As for the tarot, Jameela Dallis is the resident card reader, offering sessions on a suggested donation basis, $10 for 10-15 minutes and $20 for 20-30 minutes. If you're looking for a new hangout this weekend, pop by—on most nights Thursday–Saturday there's live music or a DJ leading an underground dance party.
Arcana is on Main St., but don't let that fool you, you have to access it from the back. We suggest you take the little alleyway between Area Modern Home and Vert & Vogue at the corner of W. Chapel Hill St. and Main and make a left till you hit the nondescript door before Beyú.
