If you love dive bars, the bars that the Paige Hospitality guys create are not for you. They cater to a more sophisticated gentleman who loves bars, too, but ones with style and, dare we say, dignity. Their places have cachet and, therefore, attract a high-end customer who also has style. Paige is so committed to this style, that it even created an appointment-only men’s custom clothing store beneath its tony neighborhood bar, The Ainsworth. At a time when it seems just about every place is going super casual, Paige is going in the other direction, and a lot of customers are going with them.
