The real test of a bar is how it looks in the morning, filled with daylight. Most places can’t hold up to that test. Most bars need the forgiveness of moonlight and neon to look good. Anonymity is their character. Broad daylight ruins them. You’re not meant to see a bar that way. Just like you’re not supposed to see a woman without her makeup, but a really beautiful one even looks good without it.
