The Cosmo Lounge
The quintessential dive bar. Pleasingly dark with lots of bar stools complete with ripped vinyl seats, scattered tables and a surly bartendress. Fun cheesy velvet art, B movie posters and framed bad 80’s albums on the walls. 1 pool table tucked away in a separate room. A few obligatory video poker machines. Good music playing.
No food except cheap packaged snacks, hot dogs and $1 Jell-o shots. If any of those count as “food”.
All in all, a small hole in the wall ideally designed for a quick, stiff drink.
