New patio, new lounge

The team within the Bridge Lounge have a vision and the desire to see it through.

It hasn’t been easy, changing a bad reputation in such tough economic times but since opening the Bridge Lounge in the summer of 2010 that has been the priority.

Now with the reopening of the patio on the river and the new hours of operation management says it thinks it sees a glimmer of hope.

The patio is financially the largest project planned for the future improvements of the Bridge Lounge and people are walking through the doors again to enjoy the view and share memories from years gone by. The team within the Bridge Lounge have a vision and the desire to see it through.

“We want everyone in our community to be able to walk in at any time, feel comfortable, and enjoy their time with us,” Bridge management says. “We provide entertainment for all ages. We invite everyone (19+ of course) to come in, visit the new patio, get to know us and discover the variety of musical entertainment we present.”

The Bridge Lounge is also available seven days a week for private functions if you are looking for a venue to host your event. Bookings are starting to fill up for Christmas parties already so be sure to book soon. The Bridge says it is proud to work closely with Ambassador Shuttle to ensure you have a safe way to and from home for a reasonable price.

The patio on the river and the bar are now open daily from 1 p.m. till closing. During the day, they deliver a variety of music to suit your mood, be it Latin, country or maybe top 40 hits as well as free live music every Thursday at 9 p.m. with Monkey Wrench, one of B.C.’s most successful cover bands from Courtenay.

“We wish to thank everyone, past and present for their ongoing and continued support. Almost everyone can tell you a story or two about a past experience at our location and we wish to continue creating good times with great friends.”
