Love at Northside Social

Local realtor and resident Laura Rubinchuk claims to be in love with the new coffee shop Northside Social, and I can see why. The swanky venue that replaced Murky Coffee is now open and has rebuilt been to make a great use of interior space.

I don't think its fair to try to compare this new shop, founded by the same owners as Liberty Tavern, to its previous tenet Murky Coffee which closed a year ago. Northside Social has a very different feel and style, and is still a great alternative to the ubiquitous Starbucks.

This coffee shop on the very western edge of Clarendon would make for a perfect first date location. I'm sure its ample outdoor seating will be in demand when this summer warms up!
