The Dankness Dojo is a new downtown brewery/restaurant/all-day coffee shop from Modern Times (the beer company) and, despite the name, it’s an extremely fun place to hang out. Brightly-colored with a partytime feel, Dankness is already packed, but with a relaxed crowd simply looking to drink good beer. The plant-based/vegan food menu is, unfortunately, not very good, so we’d recommend eating elsewhere for some post-IPA nourishment.
