Swan Oyster Depot Keep on shuckin'

Meet the Swan Oyster Depot: A dive-bar, a fishmongers and a seafood eatery, all fused into one with considerable aplomb.

And the cocktails ain’t half bad either, mixed using homegrown shrubs, tonics and enough sherry to drown the Armada.

The owner’s penchant for descriptors, such as ‘darling’ and ‘lovely,’ indicate the Bell Jar’s governing mission—to sell gorgeous little things for women with discerning, artistic, whimsical (and expensive) taste. With a shop name that pays homage to one of tortured poet Sylvia Plath’s feminist odes, the Bell Jar offers flouncy, whimsical, usually haute-couture apparel hand-crafted by local fashion renegades; old-fashioned, fancy home decor, such as a vintage ceramic horse statue and a taxidermy double-headed chick; and curiosities ranging from a shark-tooth, gold-chain necklace to fabric embroidery of a gutted venison. Come to be amazed and empty your wallet.
