City Lounge will reopen on Friday, May 22, with a pop-up themed around "Seinfeld."
City Lounge is located in Cudahy, which allowed businesses to reopen after dropping from the Milwaukee County suburbs' stay-at-home order on Friday.
Titled "Festivus," the pop-up will open at 3 p.m. and run through the end of June, featuring decor modeled after the popular '90s sitcom, a limited menu of apps and pizza, outdoor seating with bar games, and trivia hosted on Thursday nights at 7 p.m. throughout June (hopefully hosted outdoors, if the weather allows, for greater comfort and social distancing). There is no cover, but guests must be 21 or older with no exceptions.
In order to combat the coronavirus outbreak and provide as healthy an experience as possible, City Lounge will organize all of its seating to be six feet apart both inside and out, limit guests to 50 at a time, enforce CDC guidelines within and require temperature checks at the door with a touch-free thermometer on Fridays and Saturdays. According to owner Alex Ahmad, masks are encouraged, but not required, for customers. As for employees, all staff members will wear gloves and masks, while UVC light will be used to sanitize the bar both after close as well as the following morning.
A reminder: Parts of the state of Wisconsin may be reopening, but the pandemic is not over. If you do plan to go out during these uncertain times, be safe, be smart and follow the experts' guidelines.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
