SHOPPING

New Boutique Same name, same brands, yet somehow an exciting, fresh vibe—just one more reason to love Uber, an independent decor-and-clothing shop that opened a Carmel location this fall. The polished, gallery-like arrangement of Danish furniture, Jonathan Adler objects, and cool-again leather fanny packs is pioneering the emerging shopping scene at City Center and setting […]

FOOD + DRINK

Mixing a fine pre-Prohibition cocktail takes work, sending the vested bartenders at The Libertine into a dance of controlled fury. Belly up and behold the routine: demolishing ice, scaling the wall of cubbies to reach a bottle of Fernet-Branca, whipping liqueur from jigger to glass, carving a wispy orange rind—all while keeping their ties clean. Finally, something to make us look up from our iPhones. 38 E. Washington St., 631-3333

Portraits

Polina Osherov first snapped our attention for her fashion photography, but her portraits of everyday people, which recall the high contrast of film noir, are no less dramatic. Sure, she’ll do the standard headshot—but as long as you’re paying upwards of $500 a session, why not let her frame something a little more narrative? 1045 N. Senate Ave., 752-1476

Lingerie Boutique

The front room of Barbara’s New Beginnings is packed with barely-there undies, lacy chemises, and come-hither bustiers. But the good stuff is in the back—a huge room packed to the rafters with bras of all shapes and sizes. Backless, strapless, sweetheart corset? It’s there, along with hard-to-find sizes and crazy-cute running bras. 20 W. Pine St., Zionsville, 733-4100
