One of downtown's classic bars, the Virginia Cafe has been around practically forever -since 1922 at the beloved Park Street location. Now in their new digs across from the Library, some of the history is salvaged in the form of many of the fixtures and cozy booths from the old location. But gone are the smoky haze and the claustrophobia-inducing bathrooms. A good basic bar menu, including burgers, sandwiches and snacks is complimented by signature stiff drinks. There's an endearing quality to the Virginia Cafe, because they do interesting things like the "best kissing blot" contest, which features customers' lipstick kiss marks on paper napkins.
