Lava Lounge to Host a 20th Anniversary Party on Oct. 5

Established in 1999 as an alternative to the downtown nightlife scene, Tremont's Lava Lounge, a self-described scratch kitchen and craft cocktail bar, became a go-to destination for young people looking for a place that wasn’t just a meat market.

Chef-owned and operated by Jack Anfang and Ricardo Sandoval, the bar/restaurant continues to have weekend DJs and late night food. It also regularly shows the work of featured local artists.

At 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5, it hosts a party to celebrate its 20th anniversary. There will be alumni bartenders, veteran DJs, and food and drink specials. The upstairs bar and outdoor patio will both be open as well.

Local DJs Neil Chastain, Nate Paige, RA Washington, A-Live, Lawrence Daniel Caswell, Red I, Chris Pulse, Stanton Thatcher and Candi Fresca are slated to man the turntables. Ten former bartenders, including Will Hollingsworth (currently the proprietor of Spotted Owl) and Shelly Mayen (of Chicago’s Cabra), will be on hand.

The club will also sell special new T-shirts featuring artwork by local Jason Look. Admission is free.
