Fun, come-as-your-are lounge in the heart of Midtown. Dig the old-school vibe.

Great place to unwind – My husband first went here a few weeks ago. The crowd was a mixture of all types of people. Jason the bartender is really nice and funny, he can make a mean SoCo and lime gimlet! We went back again last night and had a really great time. I feel like I am in another city when we are inside. Drink prices are very good and over all this is just a really cool, hip, casual and relaxing place to hang out. We plan on making ourselves regulars!

it should be open to the public much earlier than it's new hours of operation to keep that have kept it one of the best kept secrets for all those days gone by could only be told by oldtimers – the characters that have graced this haunted establishment over the years , do and hopefully will still come by to remininese about this, and that and whens. the place is haunted, as many ex-employees, customers,and family would attest, by Leon himself. even though the decorum has been altered and updated somewhat, this historical building still permeates an air of history and mystery one can feel upon entering and even before one is served a cocktail or two. enjoy, but don't tell just anybody.

Country music, and old-school vibe and inexpensive beer are the hallmarks of this historic Midtown area dive. – In Short
Step inside the historic bar, originally opened in 1947, and a wave of nostalgia washes over you, like in the classic old bars in New Orleans' French Quarter. Patrons can mingle near the main bar, pick up a game in the pool room, show their prowess on the dart board or just ponder the ornate chandeliers and stained glass from the mid-1800s. This is still the type of place where patrons get calls on the bar phone, every fourth song is by Merle Haggard, and bartenders (when not bartending) are the regularest of regulars.

Still Hungover....A Day Later :) – My wife and I have a blast everytime we come here. Bartenders and regulars are super nice. Tunes from the juke box were fun too. It's a no attitude type bar. Thanks for the good times and stiff drinks.

getting better – If you have not been to Leon's Lounge in a while you should check it out! They are now a full liquor bar with a good selection and great prices for the area. More and more people are finding out about this place.
