Welcome Back Lounge review image

Welcome Back Lounge

DJs, a bus turned into a bar, plates of loaded tater tots served at picnic tables on the Astroturf back lawn - Welcome Back Lounge has it all. Inside, people crowd the retro bar - with a blue checked floor and sleek wood bar straight out of the 70s, plus a light-up bingo board, which is put to good use on Monday nights - for cans of Maplewood Pulaski Pils served in bright yellow koozies. Outside, they pack picnic tables to enjoy patty melts and Back Yard Punch. Whether you’re “enjoying” some Jello shots or snacking on mini corn dogs, it’s safe to say you’re doing so at one of the more unique (and raucous) bars in the neighborhood.
