Tim's Chrome Lounge

"Old school" takes on new meaning at Tim's Chrome Bar, which has been operating adjacent to Bevo Mill since 1977. Five days a week, the bar is dark and the neon silent, but on Friday and Saturday nights, Tim's fills with folks who look to have been collecting retirement since the turn of the century. During the house band's jiving sets of oldies and goldies, they dance like it's 1958-sweethearts revolve slowly on the dance floor or even shake a tail feather en masse when the song calls for it. Bowls of snacks line the bar, and the friendly bar matron knocks back shots with blue-haired patrons. Anyone too young to collect Social Security will draw good-natured "these kids today!" glances, but those give way to appreciation if the young things are brave enough to join the fun on the floor.
