After construction of a new Brown Line station displaced its original location, Tiny Lounge relocated a mile north. Make no mistake: The cocktail lounge isn’t what it used to be. It’s bigger now, and gone is the old-school decor—this place is slick and a little mod. But sitting here with a Sazerac or a sidecar (both impeccably crafted) is so undeniably pleasant that it’s hard not to believe that the changes were for the better.

I appreciate the low key and elegant vibe of this place. With that said, nowadays, I long for a more intimate setting with slightly older crowd. They also have some exciting cocktails and food on the menu. The bartenders are also friendly. I would definitely come back here.


How has it taken me this long to come in??? Actually, I know the's because I have to walk past Fountainhead and I usually just stop there :)
Anyways, this is a neighborhood gem for sure. Seats were intimate. The whole space felt very small, hence the name, and intimate. I enjoyed a great girls' night in this little semi-private alcove in the back. Service was slightly slow at times, but it was a full bar. The drinks were fun and the menu looked great.

Truffle fries were fantastic! Old Fashion was alright. It's not on the menu, and I probably shouldn't have tried to go outside the menu.The other drinks I had were bourbon something or other - sweet, but easy drinking.

Delightful evening! Will most definitely be back!
