If you haven't been to the renovated Faculty Lounge in North Central, you're in for a surprise. The interiors are sleek, that weird smell is gone, and it all feels a little more grown up. To further entice new patrons, the bar is offering steep discounts on Monday through Saturday, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The deals include $1 PBR drafts, $3 well liquor drinks, $5 specialty cocktails, and $6 top-shelf whiskeys. This is one of the few Saturday Happy Hours in town.
The Faculty Lounge also wants to bring a bit of kitsch with Tiki Tuesdays. Bartender James Hinchey will mix up exotic rum concoctions, like Zombie Punch and Singapore Slings. Expect tiny umbrellas, kooky glassware, and the occasional flaming beverage.
