It started out in the 1850s as a prostitution den. Before that it was the location where "Common Sense" writer Thomas Paine died in 1809. Although the original building where he died is no longer standing, there is a plaque to commemorate this event. Although the drinks are simple and commonplace, the artwork depicting the Revolution is stunning. Marie's, with its intimate piano bar atmosphere, is a hangout for the local gay community as well as theater performers.
