Best Lounge

Sahara Lounge

"I'll have my drink … on the rocks." This is an example of something you might say if you were cool. And if you were really cool, you'd probably say it at the Sahara Lounge while ordering a Bloody Devil (it's like a Bloody Mary, but it kills you). Though housed in our very own Eastside, it's got the slow saunter you'd otherwise only find in the back-alley hangouts of a city like Timbuktu, where the hot sun necessitates chilling this hard. That's not to say it doesn't heat up though – there's something going on just about every night. Be it an Afropsych-funk show or the "Lesbian Wedding Sunday T-dance," there's always something happening that will hit a groove. Personally, we love the free buffet dinner they do every Saturday.
