Lillie's Victorian Establishment
The name alone should inspire any steampunker out there to visit this establishment. The bar is completely focused on the 18th century, being named after Lillie Langtry, a prominent actress and feminist of the time. The decor is stunning, as well as very period, with ornate chandeliers, stained glass windows, and vaulted ceilings extending high above the well-stocked bar. While the usual clientele is considered more along the lines of young urban professionals with the occasional artist, this oasis of the Victorian age is a must for any period enthusiast (and makes for a great backdrop for any steampunk photo shoots).
