A 1960′s style corner tavern opened by local owners, Full Court Press, complete with a Formica bar top, vintage wallpaper, wood paneling, retro light fixtures and vintage Miller beer promotional signs everywhere. The star of the show, Miller High Life, had a culture of its own in the 60’s and 70’s and its allure lives on today. The “Champagne of Beers” outsells two-to-one the next popular beer at the High Life Lounge. If a customer isn’t sipping a High Life, they’re still probably enjoying one of its contemporaries such as Hamm’s, Pabst Blue Ribbon, or original recipe Schlitz.

Like the beer, the food remains true to the era. Cheeseburger baskets, deviled eggs, Spam and egg sandwiches, liver and onions, broasted chicken and Mom’s pot roast are all favorites. The High Life Lounge is a place to relax and have a good time without spending a lot of money.

The High Life Lounge has been named “Best New Bar” and “Best Downtown Hangout” by Cityview Magazine. It was featured on the Travel Channel’s Man vs. Food and in the travel section of the New York Times. It was also named one of the best bars in America by Esquire Magazine. Come check out the Champagne of Bars!

“Drink the High Life Out of High Life” Legend

In November of 2010, an infamous group, Team Awesome and friends, set out to drink the High Life Lounge out of High Life beer bottles – a feat that had never been attempted. Legend has it that the group accomplished their goal and all survived to tell the tale.
