three mentions this year!!
Although the recent addition of DJs has imparted a club vibe, the spacious bar is still the kind of place where dog-walking neighbors and top-shelf drinkers mingle.
The Lower Garden District bar started hosting trivia this past fall, but the crowd it draws has already outgrown the space. The quizmaster asks six rounds of questions, including a "shout-out round," testing players' knowledge of a range of topics. Prizes include liquor, t-shirts and glasses.
Admission is $5 per team. 8pm Tuesdays.
The photos on the walls of Bridge Lounge are a sure sign of the Lower Garden District bar's feelings about four-legged guests. The bar stocks dog treats and leashed animals are welcome inside.

"For libation lovers with pets, the Bridge Lounge is known around town as a self-proclaimed ďdog bar.Ē Pictures of pups of all shapes and sizes adorn the walls of this hip, cement-floored hound haven. A variety of table types (bench, wall booth, cocktail) allows for easy movement through the barís empty space (which, on busy nights, there isnít much of).

Tuesday is Dog Night, where dog mommies and daddies are encouraged to bring their furry babies to the bar. Nightly, Bridge Lounge offers free Wi-Fi."

The gritty-meets-artsy vibe of the semi-gentrified Lower Garden District has its apex at the Bridge Lounge. Slick but unpretentious, it's a draw for the after-work crowd from the funkier side of the CBD (think the CAC and the Ogden Museum) who dig the black-and-white photography on the walls and the tall, icy mojitos. Most of the photos are portraits of man's best friend, which is fitting since the Bridge Lounge is one of the city's most dog-friendly bars.
