Stained-glass windows, high-beamed gothic architecture and hundreds of candles spread throughout the Church suggest a pious vibe in the former house of worship, but the congregation is as mixed as they come. Built in 1865, the roomy, multi-level Lincoln Street mainstay draws globally based DJs, local residents, retro lovers, even the under-21 set: Sections of the bar are open to those 18 and up. A rooftop patio affords one of the city's best views.
