Many bars are trying to take us back in time. Some do a painfully obvious song and dance; others do it so well it feels like the cigarette machine’s been in that spot for decades. Linger Longer Lounge is in the latter camp, pairing modern amenities with comforts from decades past. Admire the vintage neon Silver Bullet Coors Light sign while ordering a White Claw. Flip through a jukebox of Queen and Willie Nelson (and Tenacious D) as you wait for a dog from Der Wurst Hot Dogs. The lounge also houses the carryover rock star art from the now-shuttered Rogue Bar, the owner of which now partly oversees LLL, and boasts one of the most popular, full-length women’s restroom mirrors in town. Tack on raucous dance nights, a soft-lit breezeway for smokers, and a whole room dedicated to pool, and we hope Linger Longer lingers on for decades to come.
