Birds of Paradise
The Speedway is for those who pursue good, old-fashioned fun. The historic buildings and central courtyard are home to a collection of local bars, eateries, shops and an event space.
The Speedway’s newest addition will be a cocktail lounge from mixologist Ran Duan. Birds of Paradise will be a nostalgic trip back to the days when luxury airlines soared the skies.
Duan states, “Think of Pan Am. You’re going from Brazil to Japan, right? Each cocktail is going to be based off of plane tickets from one location to the other, and the cocktail’s ingredients are going to be inspired by those two locations.”
Opening soon, Birds of Paradise will operate out of the former jail underneath police headquarters. It will have just forty-five seats inside and a patio out front.
The bar promises to be a nice … um, escape.
