Cave's Lounge

There's nothing pretentious about it: Caves Lounge is comfortable, with a great jukebox and a huge back patio. It's a college hangout, just across the road from the University of Texas at Arlington. Inside, it feels like a weird vintage shop, covered in eclectic art and curtained in red velvet. Thursday nights are packed for karaoke, and a good mix of domestic and international beers are on various specials during the week. The television in the zebra-print fireplace broadcasts a cozy fire, and another over the bar houses the aquarium. In the back, picnic-style benches and lots of table space offer a good spot to share a Squatter, the lounge's version of the beer pitcher.
