Stepping into the Ardmore is a trip. The Victorian house is a historical landmark with a colorful past (including a stint as a combination speakeasy/gambling house/whore house during the Prohibition era) but the quaint, fussy décor of a refined great-aunt. The dining room of the Ardmore Café is spread out over several rooms of the house, including one in which a piano player plinks out so many cinematically-featured tunes on Friday and Saturday nights (Titanic‘s “My Heart will Go on”; the theme from Legends of the Fall). The dinner fare is on the fancier side, with exquisite cocktails such as the chocolate-cake martini and meals such as roasted beef tenderloin. Dinner is offered Thursday through Saturday; lunch is Monday through Saturday.
The Ardmore also hosts a salon, some doctor’s offices, and a really cute shop called the Urban Attic. It’s definitely an eclectic place!
