i see tons of the laguna postcards at my barber shop on palisade and franklin. it's weird because the postcards say they allow timbs and jeans, but if they really wanted to be at least semi-selective they should have stated no timbs.

plastic cups or not, i want to head out there one night. still trying to decide if it's better on a friday or saturday. as long as theres decent music and it's not completely empty, i wouldnt mind.

Just updating from my original post... I've now been in there a few times. It's a nice place, actually. Hard to grasp the crowd as it seems to change depending on the day. But, I've enjoyed myself. Plus, bartender Lola is great. Still get my drink in a plastic cup, and I've learned to just say CLUB soda instead of just soda, but... hey, it's a bar and they're trying to make it a nice place. Also, I saw first hand two guys come in who did not meet the "dress code" and were, nicely, told they weren't allowed. I asked about it and they said they bring trouble and they didn't want that for the bar. I didn't feel the guys looked particularly "thuggy" (whatever that means...) but that's the bar's choice I guess. I CAN understand trying to keep the bar as a place that the neighborhood feels safe coming into.

I'm just glad I wasn't kicked out because I had on sneakers! LOL
I looked pretty presentable beyond that...

Of course, there was a provocatively-dressed woman also on the postcard). I also got served my drink in a plastic cup and was asked what kind of soda I wanted with my vodka & soda ("Coke?"). That was fun.

The whole dress restrictions on their postcard seemed very odd to me. Especially, when you're in there, you can tell there is no way this is going to be a "classy" bar. Plus, really, a bar that has to tell me how to dress makes me pause. Not that I really care, just was really questioning their promotion of the bar. You really can't be a local hangout/sports bar AND a lounge. But, like I said, maybe they're just getting going. I did notice a room in the back, so maybe that will be the Lounge.

Anyway, I hope it does well. Not much of a choice in the Heights to grab a drink, and it's just up the street for me. Definitely better than nothing.


Drinks in Plastic cups ???????
Yeah, real classy place....

It's on Charles and Summit it used to be the old Whal's Tavern.


This is another Re-incarnation at this location, use to be a Steakhouse soon after Whals, and then a tavern again.

Its a good location, hope that it works out...

Anyone hear anything about a new place opening in the Heights called Laguna Lounge? Saw they were looking for bartenders on Craigslist. Sounds like a sports bar but its possible its more than that.
