Barking Spider Tavern

The Smart Place to Be

When you’re surrounded by museums, hospitals and academic institutions, you’re bound to attract academics and intellectuals. Here at the Barking Spider we get out fair share; conversations tend to skew smart. But they’re also down-to-earth—both the conversations and the people.

Spider patrons, be they autodidacts or PhDs, aren’t top-lofty intellectual snobs who will intimidate you with their knowledge. Instead they’ll probably pick your brain to see what they can learn from you.

Many of our customers like to read, listen to music, go to museums, watch independent films and attend lectures, while others have different hobbies and interests. What they have in common is a desire to keep learning. They simply share a healthy curiosity about what makes things tick.

If you’re down to earth and curious about the world at large, you’ll fit right in.
