Sandpiper Lounge

A serious hole-in-the-wall spot, be prepared for a cast of middle-aged regulars to swivel their heads when you walk in. Boasting one of the best mid-century neon signs in the city and located off of a main drag in (often dicey) Central City, this lavender building is smack dab in the middle of Sunday Second Line celebrations, and is a hub for community activity year-round.

What to drink
The drink offerings are slim and unusual, so go with a "set-up," which involves purchasing a half-pint of booze, a bucket of ice and a mixer of your choice as a kind of “build your own” drinking experience.
Central City
Sandpiper Lounge frequently offers no-cover-charge clues and jazz.
