The Catalina Lounge

Thanks to everyone who joined us at the Kensington Club last month. We definitely packed the place! This month we are headed West to an old favorite: The Catalina Lounge.

Located at the corner of Catalina Boulevard and Voltaire Street, the Catalina Lounge is a comfortable, old school kind of dive. They’ve got a full bar, pool tables, shuffleboard, and a digital jukebox. During the football season they are a Packers bar, but we don’t hold that against them. 🙂

Like all good Dives, the Catalina Lounge is CASH only (with an ATM on site.) They don’t serve food but the Royale is next door and other restaurants are nearby and will deliver to the bar.

Plan now to join us on Wednesday, April 24th at the Catalina Lounge.

Important info:


Parking: Street parking only so plan accordingly!

Food: They don’t serve food so feel free to bring something in or eat nearby.

Some of our recent bars

It’s a tradition to get our bartenders to hold our sign. Here’s where we’ve recently been.

We’re always open to hearing about bars we haven’t visited. Drop us a line if there is someplace you think we should check out.
