Opening Date for Bonnie Brae Landmark the Campus Lounge Set

A remodeled dive bar for the 21st century

Campus Lounge

First announcing “when the neon is on, you'll know we are open,” the completely overhauled and upgraded Campus Lounge made things a little easier for eager fans by also revealing the doors will swing open on Saturday, Oct. 21.

Looking to establish itself as “your local neighborhood restaurant and bar,” the former dive bar with 40 years of service on the corner of South University Boulevard and East Exposition Avenue returns in spirit with from scratch comfort food, cocktails, wine and beer.

Restaurateur Dan Landes and chef Christopher Medved are behind the new direction, working in an open kitchen to create fun and contemporary” dishes, snacks and even a kids’ menu.

Already teased for the menu, a Korean-fried chicken sandwich; beet-pickled deviled eggs with with Tivoli helles mustard, paprika potato chips and micro greens; a gluten-free and vegan apple crisp with homemade vanilla ice cream, plus a retro-designed interior, including vintage wallpaper, booth seating, pinball machines, a photo booth and a juke box.
