Name: Whitney Williams & Caroline Davis Setting: Nightcaps (2722 Devine St.)
I have heard Nightcaps described as a service industry bar, but when I came here on Monday it was pretty barren. Now it’s packed. How would you define this bar?
W: It is definitely a service industry bar. They usually come later on in the night, though, since this place is one of the only bars around that stays open until 4 a.m. But it is so much more than that, too.
This is where the people who are really connected to Columbia come to hang out. It’s a great place to meet people because everyone is so friendly, and the staff is incredible. It is also the bar that every wedding party goes to after the reception. If there is a wedding in Columbia, they will eventually end up at Nightcaps. They have great food, too.
C: Yes, their mozzarella sticks are the best.
Sounds like this is the afterparty bar.
W: For sure, that’s the best way to describe it.
When I walked in, Disclosure was playing. I am a big fan of theirs, but would you say that this is the kind of place people come to dance to that kind of music?
W: No, people don’t come here to dance. Nightcaps is more of a place to come and hang out, talk and meet people.
C: Yeah, we actually just met 30 minutes ago.
I would have pegged you all as old friends. If you were trying to tell a friend what bar Nightcaps resembles, what bar would it be?
C: It’s like a late-night Henry’s.
If you aren’t at Nightcaps where are you?
C: I would be at Bourbon. Or at Jake’s, but only during the summer.
