July marks a decade since Union Station reopened following its $54 million renovation in 2014. In honor of the anniversary, the depot is getting another touch-up, this time to the tune of a mere $11 million.

Check out these five new(ish) neighborhood eateries and experiences where you can toast the landmark’s second second wind.

1. Cooper Lounge

Union Station’s latest update includes a revamp of the mezzanine’s ritzy Cooper Lounge, which will host its grand reopening from July 12 to 14. You can still indulge in the bar’s flaky Brie en croute and signature Old Manhattan cocktail, a marriage of single-barrel whiskeys and Carpano Antica vermouth. You’ll just do so from new, plush banquettes that overlook the refreshed Great Hall. 1701 Wynkoop St.

2. Flight Club

If you like darts but would rather spend your time socializing than keeping score, Flight Club is for you. The national chain opened a location on the 16th Street Mall in June 2023 and uses an automated system to track winners and losers in its six custom darts games, including Donkey Derby, in which you race your steed to the finish line by racking up points. 1959 16th St.

3. Holey Moley

At this indoor putt-putt facility, you’ll attempt to make par while (fake) dollar bills swirl around you in a money tornado, among other whimsical obstacles. Like any respectable course, it serves plenty of swing oil, but it also mixes cocktails your country club would never offer, such as the Rub a Dub in the Tub: a miniature clawfoot filled with gin, juice, Aperol, and prosecco. 1201 18th St.

4. Hello Darling

To impress your colleagues during your next Zoom meeting, let the forest green furniture, luxe pink pillows, geometric tiling, and billowing fiber art at Hello Darling be your background bragging rights. Then stick around the light-filled cafe and cocktail lounge until 3 p.m., when you can trade your matcha for a happy hour margarita. 1610 Little Raven St., Suite 110

5. Ukiyo

Ready for a tasty trust fall? Savor a multi-course dinner (from $175) at Ukiyo, the 12-seat Japanese eatery beneath Bao Brewhouse. Served omakase-style, the seasonal tasting menu is dreamed up by chef Phraseuth “Paul” Sananikone, former creative director of sushi at Jing Aspen. Expect innovative—and Instagrammable—bites like sticky rice topped with Laotian jerky, a cotton candy bonsai tree, and an oyster filled with tamarind paste, fish sauce, and bird’s eye chiles.
1317 14th St., Suite 0
