We hadn’t been to SqWires in a while, and we’d almost forgotten how much we liked the interior. SqWires is housed in a former factory space in Lafayette Square, and many of the industrial accoutrements from days past remain, such as the large ceiling fans and exposed brick and ductwork. The ceilings themselves are at their original height, providing a wide-open, spacious feel. Interesting details abound, from the vintage radios that line parts of the dining room to the deliberately mismatched light fixtures over the bar. Although it wasn’t in action during our visit, there also is a large fireplace in the corner of the dining room, which lends a pub-like air to the space. The weather wasn’t cooperating when we stopped by, but SqWires has a spacious patio dining area out front that provides a nice al fresco dining option.
