Think you know music? The Bungalow LoungeBar wants you to prove it--or at least have fun trying. Beginning Thursday, April 9 at 8pm, and continuing every Thursday, Lakeview??s Bungalow LoungeBar will quiz participants on song lyrics, trivia, music clips (think ??Name that Tune?) and more. Participants will play in teams of ve people or less and can create their own team or be grouped into a team at the quiz. Prizes will be awarded to the top teams.

??Chicagoans know music,? says Aaron Hogan, the Bungalow??s owner, ??and I don??t mean one or two BonJovi or Britney Spears songs. I mean every genre, every decade from stadium rockers to small indie bands.? Hogan says the content of the quiz will re?ect this same broad spectrum of music interests.

??If you own an iPod, listen to the radio, or watch MTV, you??ll do well on the quiz,? Hogan continues. ??To win, though, you??re going to need to know one or two ??B-sides??--and know what a B-side is!?

Hogan has had a life-long passion for music and it was knowing an obscure ??B-side? that landed him the ultimate prize: his wife. ??She decided she was going to marry me on our rst date after I said Beyond Belief by Elvis Costello was one of my favorite songs.?

Never underestimate the power of knowing your music.

Pros: Example: best croissants in town

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

.

Not worth the time or money. The servers and bartenders act as if they are doing you a favor by asking you your order.

Not worth the time or money. The servers and bartenders act as if they are doing you a favor by asking you your order.

Pros: Lots of parking, because no one goes there

Cons: Price, rude staff, weak drinks

.

Great decor, great location, parking available all over neighborhood. Fantastic crowd! Easily assessible to transportation. One problem is the over priced bar menu, $7 jack and coke that has practically no Jack and is in a 12oz glass. Wine is reasonably priced and so are the beers, but mixed drinks are terribly priced and they have little liquour in them.

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of other Belmont areas the Bungalow Loungebar is the place to be any night of the week.

Cons: over priced mixed drinks!

I stumbled on the place a few weeks ago because someone recommeded the music on Wednesday nights. As it turns out the DJ on Wednesdays is this guy from WNUR that served up some of the best lounge music I have ever heard! Roy Ayres on a weeknight in a Chicago bar? Finally!!!

Pros: Music, Martinis, parking

I love to compare bar bathrooms and this place is one of the best!! I've been here a couple of times and I have to say that it is one of the nicest places I've been to in Lakeview.

My friends and I went on a Saturday for another friends birthday. The place is cool but the service is horrible. I think the servers and the bar staff should be less concerned on how they look and concetrate on the customers

Pros: cool atmosphere

Cons: bad service, crowded

I would not use the word 'unpretentious' to describe this crowd. Clientel was a little snooty, but the drinks were great. I highly recommend the chocolate martini - complete with a hershey kiss! With a small group, this is a very intimate place to hang out for an evening.

Smooth out in the plush booths, hang out at the long bar, choose your grooves on the jukebox, or hang with the DJ -- this place screams "chill". My friends love it, we have never had a bad time, and it is not full of people trying to be "seen", just cool cats kicking back. The drinks rock and m y friends will smooth here for a long time. Great Job! Hint: Parking lot behind.

Had a great time, great atmosphere and hip, laid-back crowd. There's even parking on the street nearby!
