The back room at Dizzy's, which fronts onto President Street with three French doors and several skylights, is now being used during the day as an internet cafe.
The space was previously home to Cabana bar, a Latin-influenced offshoot of Playa (which occupied the corner spot on Fifth where Dizzy's is now), and after that it became a little-used private room for Comida, the upscale Mexican restaurant that replaced it in November 2010 and closed 15 months later. Dizzy's has used the space as a private party room and for overflow crowds since it opened almost exactly two years ago, but now on Mondays through Fridays from 8 am to 5 pm it's open as an internet cafe.
The full menu is available, and it's cash-only. Shame that this is actually one of the most attractive private spaces in the neighborhood, but it remains woefully underused.
