You can find a mix of both house bands and in-house DJs here on the weekends. Fuel up here before a big night out with their lively venue serving pub grub and burgers.

The Unforgiven Lounge

This swanky lounge/bar is just as well known for its fun food menu as it is its nightlife scene. Their bar boasts a lot of classic martini favorites, that can be sipped on inside or on the outdoor patio.  The BBQ ribs and baked potato were a hit with our group!

The Unforgiven Lounge is in eastern Washington, but it feels like it belongs on the Las Vegas strip. From the liquor tower to the Chrome decor and colorful lighting, we guarantee you’ll have fun. This is a great place for dancing and partying with friends!
