Keep Nicks Lounge Alive

Greetings to the friends, family, and patrons of Nick’s Lounge,

Hope you are all safe and sound. We miss you and hope to see you all when the time is right. As you know, we have been forced to close our doors during the ongoing pandemic. We are trying our best to weather the storm so we can once again provide a space for people to sing their favorite songs or just hang out and find comfort from the world at large. Karaoke  is our favorite public-gathering pastime, and is especially affected by the social-distancing protocols.

From birthdays to anniversaries to graduations to engagements - a few of which have happened here - it’s clear that Nick’s Lounge isn’t your ordinary neighborhood bar. In these trying times, the home we cherish at Nick’s faces the same threat as many small businesses: the possibility of permanent closure. Unfortunately, we have been unable to procure a loan from the federal government. We have not given up;  we plan to apply for any grant or loan program that becomes available, but there are so many businesses applying that the chances of success are proving to be slim. We are reaching out now to our community, to our friends, and to our family to help ensure that we will all have a place to come home to when all of this has subsided.

We love and appreciate all of you, and we hope you are healthy and staying safe.

Let’s keep Nick’s Lounge alive.
