A new-fashioned “juke joint” dishing out cold craft beers and hot local and national bands is up and running in downtown Delray.
That would be Vintage Tap (524 W. Atlantic Ave., 561/808-7702), a new biergarten-slash-music venue by restaurateur-designer Patrick O’Riordan that has set up shop in the 1930s-vintage building once home to the Clearview Lounge. Sporting a campy, Prohibition-era theme and decor, the Tap features some two dozen craft beers on tap, including the brews of such esteemed local brewers as Due South and Saltwater Brewery.
The space itself boasts a small, rustic-looking stage backed by an American flag, plus a beer garden, full bar and spacious outdoor patio. It’s also adjacent to the city’s outdoor amphitheater, just the spot for special events and live concerts.
