Lake Effect is not your average bar

Featuring the largest liquor selection in the state, gorgeous interiors, a stellar menu of latin inspired food, and live music 7 days a week - it's not to be missed!

Private Events - Lake Effect is the perfect venue for your next company party or networking mixer - with two levels and two full bars, we've got ample space and a great sound system for any presentations or award ceremonies.  Reserve one of our smaller lounges for a business dinner and it'll be sure to impress your guests. 

Dining - If you're just looking for food after a long day at the convention center, you don't have to look far!  Lake Effect is located right across the street - 155 W 200 S. We've got half price tacos until 4:00 just for you - spicy shaved chicken, smoky barbacoa beef, pork braised with pineapple and chilies, and fried avocado!  Not to mention the juicy burgers or the teetering tin can nachos. We also do a fantastic weekend brunch featuring churro french toast and the monstrous borracho burger (a burger stuffed with chile verde and topped with a crispy hashbrown and fried egg)

Drinks - Nothing sounds better at the end of a long day of touring our historical downtown sector than an ice cold beer - we've got 20 on draft and over 75 bottled, both imported and local.  Our wine room will leave your jaw hanging and our cocktails are the best in the city.  Try the Oaxacan Old Fashioned, one of our most popular drinks - smoky mezcal and tequila with chocolate and orange bitters - or maybe the Zion - Pisco with mango, pineapple gomme, and a few slices of serrano pepper for a kick.

We've got something for everyone - come on in!
