Best Kept Secret

Spirit Room

Chances are if you drive over the Blatnik Bridge every day to come to or from Superior, you've passed the Spirit Room many times and don't even know it. It is located at the corner of Hammond and Broadway right above Red Mug coffee shop. It's a unique location. The building is the Old Superior City Hall that goes back to 1890. The name "Spirit Room" refers both to the full selection of liquor and beers the bar and restaurant has, but it also hints at the past of the building and the spirits that perhaps reside there due to its long history. This is not the only way Spirit Room is unique. It is also the area's only Tapas Bar. "Tapas are small plated exquisite appetizers designed to encourage social dining,” states the restaurant's website. It's definitely an establishment worth checking out.
