Since April, Thunderbird Lounge has operated in the last slot of the Melrose District's historic Wagon Wheel Building. The new neighborhood bar shoots for a 1970s Midwestern tavern vibe, and its three owners/friends seem to have accomplished this. The amenities are the best part: The ATM dispenses singles and fives for the jukebox and cigarette machine, and there's wood-fired pizza made in the backyard-style patio by Dino's Napoletana (part of the neighboring Restaurant Progress team). The arcade machines are set to free play all day, and there are endless supplies of Montucky Cold Snacks, RC Cola, Jay's Potato Chips, and O-Ke-Doke popcorn. Guests also can expect happy hour specials and themed evenings.
