Thursday's is an Akron institution.

Thursday's Lounge is Akron, Ohio's favorite place for dancing, hanging out, and live entertainment. Established in 1983 on The University of Akron's main strip, Thursday's Lounge has accomodated thousands upon thousands of bargoers for over three decades. It's loud, it's newly remodeled and it's one of a kind. Thursday's Lounge has a great "pub-like" atmosphere yet has the immenities of great dance club and live music venue. Thursday's has been run by the same family since its inception in '83.

Since 1983, Thursdays's has been expanded three times and has seen many face lifts. Begining in late 2013, thirty years after it opened, Thursday's was at again. New bathrooms, more drafts, and a better patio are just a few of the upgrades. To learn more about daily events and to see pictures, visit our facebook here and "like us".

Thursday's features large outdoor patios, parking, a punishing sound system, and a capacity of around 300 people. We also have a Sunday liquor license.
