Haven't you heard? Lemmons is the new Cheers, where regulars mingle with newbies, hipsters freely embrace an older element, and, of course, everybody knows your name. Lemmons is split into three areas: the music venue, which boasts a raised stage in the back for local and touring acts (and the occasional DJ night); the game area, replete with Foosball, table-shuffle, video games, board games and Lemmons' famous trivia nights; and the basement, which is a haven of billiards and beer. The bar dominates the room, but the surrounding tables provide ample seating to partake in popular Black Thorn pizza.
Head to Lemmons every Tuesday for a night of improv featuring The Improv Trick, special guest performers and comedic musical opening acts. Anyone w...

Mondays. Ugh. Honestly, what could be worse than a flamboyant flair-wearing, disparaging, mentally and physically impairing case of the Mondays? Fortunately, for the past five years Lemmons has countered the fax machine-destroying, f-bomb finger-flippin' monster in all of us with its Monday-night "Film Feastivals," which offer an antidote to the start-of-the-work-week blues in the form of a free evening of movie-watching abetted by a buffet of meatballs, peppery wings and Black Thorn's...

Every Wednesday at 8 p.m. (or 8:15, or 8:30, or, you know, however long it takes the teams of eight to settle in with those thick-crust pizzas), the first of five rounds (at ten questions apiece) begins. The creators: Lemmons booker Jamie Foehner and trivia maven Sandy Olive, whose weekly knowledge deathmatch turned one year old on September 8. The capture: The team that wins each round receives a free pitcher of beer, and overall third-place winners receive a free small pizza, second gets a... More »
A satellite of the popular Black Thorn pizza parlor, Lemmons Basement Bar is often eerily reminiscent of the late, great Cicero's Basement Bar, back when it was on the other side of the street and not so redolent of patchouli. Like its legendary predecessor, Lemmons is thick with smoke and lank-haired hipster-dudes, and all those over six feet tall will almost certainly knock their heads if they don't immediately duck upon approaching the tiny but well-stocked bar. With its funny little... More »
In addition to the fame, the chicks and the mountains of coke, one of the best things about being in a rock band is getting to carry heavy musical equipment through glass-strewn alleys and up and down narrow back staircases slick with beer, urine and GG Allin knows what else. Leave it to those clueless folks at the Black Thorn at Lemmons to steal that simple joy. Not only do they let musicians use the front entrance, just inside the door is an elevator that lets out -- get this -- right next... More »
