“The Lounge” is the newest business in Wyoming, located at 103 N. 7th Street.
The bar and gaming facility officially opened last Friday after a trial run and soft opening on Thursday night with local community leaders and friends.
Owners David Hamilton, Trent Frisby, Bob Bohm and Chad Patel say they transformed the building in just 20 days and will soon offer gaming machines. The low lighting and couches offer customers a friendly environment and multiple televisions ensure you’ll catch your favorite team.
“The Lounge” occupies the former “Gaming Goat” board game store, which was only open for a short while in early 2017. The building sat empty from mid-January until mid-October.
Patel told The News that they hope to have musical entertainment from time to time, which is the specialty of Hamilton’s. The bar features a wide assortment of canned and bottled beers with liquor coming in the future.
The new business is one of two coming to the east side of the 100 block. At 101 N. 7th Street “Handmade 4 U” will be opening on Nov.
17 during Moonlight Madness. It will be a vendor resale store where vendors of all types can rent a space to sell their items. It is taking the place of “New and Weecycled.”
“The Lounge” is open daily 4pm to midnight on weekdays and noon to 1am on weekends. After the acquisition of gaming machines, those hours will expand to an earlier start time.
