There's a new neighborhood bar and restaurant coming to town -- Darien Social, a place to gather over food and drinks that encompasses everything an all-American bar should be.
Set to open by Feb. 1, Darien Social holds the corner spot of a rejuvenated downtown Darien with a window overlooking the MetroNorth train station and town. The street side brick façade gives way to an urbane respite framed by exposed brick and wood paneled walls, dark wood furnishings, leather banquette seating, a large white granite top bar and soft lighting to compliment the earth tones throughout. The courtyard entrance is adorned with tall potted greenery and guests are greeted as they make their way through the large mahogany doors. Wood floors throughout are made from recycled wide plank oak and even the restrooms boast attention to detail as seen in the use of real river stone pebble flooring. The dining room walls are adorned with vintage black and white photography that depicts the carefree attitude of the 1920s and the resolute of a nation during the prohibition years. The decor speaks to Darien Social's approach and commitment to providing their guests with a place from which to hang their hat.
