New Feature!



The "back-door-Betty" style lounge offers subdued, sexy lighting and cozy couches that make the Marfreless River Oaks Lounge a surprisingly romantic setting. Couples looking for a quiet table where they can chat softly, nurse a few glasses of good wine, and listen to soft classical music will be impressed with its appeal. A landmark lounge, the Marfreless was established in 1972 with nothing more than their name scribbled across a boarded up window. The owner intended on creating a bar with no theme, no television, no darts and no dance floor. Instead, he offered an intimate setting that attracted loyal patrons. The bar has been modernized since 2003 without compromising the original owner's integrity. There is a full bar and drink specials are offered throughout the week.

"Pay attention as you make your way down Peden Street or you stand a good chance of missing the unmarked blue door, which in no way foretells the intimate lounge that waits for you inside. "
