Jackalope Lounge


Jackalope Lounge is a dressed-down sports bar in Eugene, whose main decoration (and inspiration) is the circumspect “jackalope” taxidermy mounted near the bar. With an extensive list of specials in addition to a variety of games like pinball, darts, pool, bowling, and golden tee there’s hardly a thing that Jackalope doesn’t have. The menu is an impressive array of burgers, sandwiches, salads, and other bar fare, but won’t have to venture too far in to discover the gems. An order of French fries will get you a pound of golden beer battered or curly fries, which you can load up with bleu cheese, cheddar cheese, or bacon. When decisions stop becoming easy (perhaps after a few too many of the 16 local and regional beers on tap), spare yourself the trouble and try the sampler platter, which offers hot wings, mini corndogs, jalapeno-mozzarella cheese sticks, and potato skins. Though all this food and drink might leave you dazed and confused, don’t stare too long at the mythical jack-rabbit-meets-antelope head; he’ll get offended.
