Former G. Fox mezzanine now home to cocktail lounge

Most of the former G. Fox department store on Main Street was taken over several years ago by Capital Community College--but not all of it. The latest issue of the Hartford Courant's NE magazine contains a review of Mezzanine, a cocktail lounge that occupies (where else?) the former store's great Art Deco mezzanine. "Swank is perhaps the best word to describe the cocktail lounge, outfitted with handsome furniture, rich textiles and low-watt lamps," the Courant reports. Those of us who shopped or worked there in the early '80s remember it as the home of G. Fox's suprisingly good record store.
