Editorial Review of Marquee Lounge

Both in outward and inward appearance, the Marquee Lounge is fairly typical of a neighborhood, corner bar. Firstly, it's way, way small—which is just how you like it! Secondly, it's brown from the bar to the walls to the ceiling to the floor to the chairs to the tables to the stools (or at least it seemed that way when we visited). Thirdly, it has ONE bowling arcade game, ONE hi-def television forever stuck on ESPN, ONE pool table, probably even ONE dartboard tucked away somewhere in the back and, of course, lots and lots of beer.

Draft beer includes libations from all around the world—Spatan Pilsner, Guiness, Stella Artois and more ($5.50); domestic includes Fat Tire, Blue Moon, Original Sin Cider and the Bud and Miller families ($4-$11); imports include Duvel, Orval and more ($4.50); wine is $6 all around; and champagne is $8, $20 and $40. Although we get the feeling this is less a "wine and champagne place" and more a "beer place."

Unless you plan to buy a round of shots for everyone everywhere (in the bar, that is), don't forget your cashola. Sure, they accept credit cards, but only when the bill is $20 and up.
