Matt LaBarge, co-owner of the popular South Broadway spots hi-dive and Sputnik, is all set to open his third spot, Lost Lake Lounge
, at 5 p.m. tonight. He's turned the former Bulldog Bar space (which was the Monroe Tavern before that, and Mr. Von's Alamo before that), into a cabin-styled lounge. "I'm just kind of loosely following what's already there," says LaBarge of the space, which has a wood interior and a wood-burning fireplace.
It will be a piano bar on Sundays and Mondays, and while the guy who'll play on Sundays can do standards and classics, he might mix it up with with indie rock from the last ten years, or so with some Radiohead and the Strokes. Starting in April, LaBarge will bring in bands for monthly residencies on Thursdays, where bands will curate each night of the month.
Get lost at Lost Lake tonight.
