Clifton’s Black-owned bar, Fantasy Drink Lounge, is a haven for those who love fruity slushie drinks and fun drinks that are Instagram-worthy. Fantasy Drink Lounge also offers a variety of hookah flavors. Don’t forget to swing by during the happy hour from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Fantasy Drink Lounge specializes in fun, colorful, sweet, and decorative drinks. Their fishbowls are 25 dollars and can be shareable. Events such as Bengals game day watch parties, R&B and hookah Wednesdays, tacos and tequila Tuesdays, and throwback Thursdays are hosted here.
Owned by Rashad and Airyes Kyte, they had been trying to open the drink lounge for two years and finally opened the bar during the COVID pandemic. The bar offers a futuristic vibe with a lit-up bar, lit-up chairs, and drinks garnished with candy.
No dress code is enforced. Some parking options near the establishment include Clifton Parking Garage or street parking, but most people recommend getting an Uber or getting dropped off.
“Fun little hole in the wall, nice music, great slushie drinks, and delicious hookah. Great music too. Door man was very nice.”
“This was one of the best places I’ve ever had the pleasure of stopping into! The drink I had was AMAZING- one sip, and I knew I needed another! The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable, made suggestions, and helped us decide! 100/10 would recommend!!”
“This was a cute place to go to for a small get together. The space Is smaller than I thought it would be. The drinks are good and unique. Prices range from 8-25 for a drink. As with any place in Clifton, parking is horrible. I would suggest catching an Uber or getting dropped off.”
