A restaurant meal is incomplete without its after-dinner mint, which cleanses the palate before patrons gnaw a subterranean tunnel home. Chew the scenery with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of bar fare and drink at The Dispensary Lounge.
The Dispensary Lounge's bright red doors usher the bar's clientele into a tangerine space filled with hanging plants and furniture that reclines at easy angles. While the bar stays open all 24 hours of the day, the kitchen produces edibles from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. In that 14-hour span each day, patrons can gnaw on a texas barbecued cheeseburger slathered in homemade spicy western marinade ($6.95) or dip a baked ham-and-cheese sandwich into a tiny vat of the owners' special mustard sauce ($8.95). An angular, wooden bar transmits cool drinks ($4–$5) as patrons navigate the video poker games inset into the bar top. The Dispensary Lounge also hosts weekly drawings, and though winners do not have to be physically present, their body doubles must stand in to accept the prize.
