The first people to successfully paint the town red spent more time haphazardly assembling scaffolding and arguing over who got to be the "foreman" than enjoying the results. Take the planning out of carousing with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a private cabana party package, including a premium liquor of your choice and mixers for about 20 drinks, at the Nomad Lounge (a $140 value).
Mingling choice drinks with heavy house beats, Nomad Lounge's art-encrusted walls play nightly host to the carousal of Omaha's head-bopping artistic community. With this package, revelers gain entry to a private cabana, where they slosh the premium liquor of their choice together with all the mixers required to create about 20 drinks, quaffing in time to trip-hop and dub like Beowulf in his strobe-lit mead hall. On weekends and special occasions, the music selection expands as the stable of resident DJs welcomes guests from all over the world to share the stage. Shelves lined with candles set Nomad Lounge’s exposed-brick walls aglow, and rough-hewn wooden pillars, combined with the exposed pipes of the high ceiling, contribute to an edgy, loft-like feel that neatly contrasts with revelers’ cozy, cushy cabanas.
