every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday Night
8:00pm - 10:00pm
Note: Though there is no cover to get in, Tryst is a table/waiter service restaurant, bar and coffeehouse and there really isn't any standing room space so they'll expect you to order something, even if it's just a tea or soda, if you sit down. On the positive side, they have a great selection of tea, coffee, coffee cocktails, and regular bar as well as pastries, small plates and other food.
