MANCHESTER - When the pandemic forced Cheddar & Rye whiskey bar to temporarily close in March, owners Chaz Mitchell and Liu Vaine brainstormed ways to reinvent a small space on the corner of Elm and Hanover streets.

The two came up with the Peacock Tails Lounge, which includes hip furniture for about 25 people to sip craft cocktails. The space is decked out with peacock feathers and other brightly colored decor throughout.
