Alphabet Lounge


What do you get when you mix pretension and utter lameness? Hello Alphabet Lounge. How about a spliff-smoking DJ, an annoying, beat-deaf bongo player and a bartender who never charges the same thing twice for a drink? Bingo! It’s the Alphabet Lounge. Add a listless clientele, more smoke than the Springfield tire fire and terrible configuration of usable space, and you have what amounts to an overall sleep-inducing time. By the way, there is nothing we hate more than inconsistency in drink pricing (along with a smarmy bartender who looks like he knows he’s ripping you off). If you’re going to call the high strike, that’s fine, but at least call it all night long. [MF]
