Nightlife in Citrus Heights

Card sharks place their bets at Lucky Derby Casino's smoke-free blackjack and poker tables before heading over to Rounders Sports Bar for hearty steak dinners, billiards, and darts. Appetizing niblets ready hunger pangs for their fate, as couples sip on selections from the beer and wine list. A 12-ounce cut of tender rib-eye steak or tilapia whispers sweet nothings to taste buds, as a potato and veggies skulk on the side, always the bridesmaid. After dinner, chalk up some cues for eight felt-pelting rounds of pool or test precision tossing skills at the dartboard. Fifteen high-definition TVs rain down sporting events pumped into the pub by ESPN GamePlan and NFL Sunday Ticket, and comics make with the chuckling during open-mic Tuesday. The athletics-themed venue fills up with the sounds of amateur crooning on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights as singers take the karaoke stage.

Formerly a cardroom where Sacramento's poker players regularly congregated to play a late-night game and talk about their crushes, the Phoenix Lounge has been reborn as a 5,000-square-foot sports bar, event center, and dart-throwing arena. Add a wall of flat-screen TVs, weekly trivia contests, and a regular lineup of standup comedians, and what remains is a spot to relax, laugh, and tip back a brew or two any night of the week.

The term "couch potato" usually applies to lazy people, a description that doesn’t at all befit The Couch's executive chef, who hustles to to his own culinary play calls nightly. To create the bar's couch potatoes, he hand-cuts housemade french fries every day, serving them plain or tossed in a choice of six zesty seasonings. His other elevated bar fare demands a similar level of dedication, from housemade soups to sandwich meats slow roasted in-house, such as barbecue pulled pork and roast beef.

True to its name, The Couch––founded by local Del campo graduates and high school sweethearts, along with their close friend––houses plenty of couches to lounge on, as well as tranquil patio seating. Throughout each feast, nine flat-screen TVs and and two 106-inch projector screens broadcast the latest sports, from baseball in the summer to polar bears playing baseball in the winter. Besides sports, The Couch's weekly entertainment lineup includes karaoke every Wednesday and live music every Saturday night.
