True bohemian rhapsody: Singer-songwriters pass the hat among herbal-tea drinkers and chess players at the city's last co-op.. The Scene Nestled deep within an Uptown residential area, this nonprofit landmark of the local folkie scene boasts a laid-back decor that recalls the common room at a particularly hip (or hippie) college dorm. In fact, if the living-room atmosphere here were any more low key, it wouldn't have a pulse.
The Draw This cozy space, known for its comfortable chairs and array of board games (including checkers, chess and Scrabble), is the unofficial center of operations for the local aspiring singer-songwriter set, as well as an attractive venue for more established folk/acoustic acts guaranteed an attentive (if small) audience. There's no alcohol; rather the drinkers cup coffees and teas.
