Because this lounge hasn't fallen prey to the sporty, fratty trappings of most DePaul-area bars, it has become the place for the mellow, martini-sipping Lincoln Park set to find a mate. Deep red walls and dim crimson lighting surround moveable black leather blocks and a small stage that plays host to acoustic guitarists on Mondays, a jazz trio on Tuesdays, rock bands on Wednesdays and DJs the rest of the week.
