The Zephyr Lounge slogan is, "The train that never leaves Aurora." But why would you want to leave a place that has morning happy hours -- which have been a tradition there since the bar opened more than six decades ago -- two more happy hours later in the evenings (from 5 to 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.), karaoke and poker nights during the week, and bands playing blues, R&B and rock, with no cover on the weekends? The menu includes various appetizers and sandwiches, and the Zephyr is also the home of the original deep-fried cheeseburger.
