I was attracted by the name (a sucker for the underdog, and one that admits it) and the general look of the place fits the description. There are awful velvet paintings, cheap seats, a black light in the back, and ugly dark wood paneling all around. However, the music was along alternative lines - Modest Mouse instead of The Knaack, for example - but not at all pretentious. The bartenders seemed dubious of non-regulars but were cordial once engaged. Food was an assortment of inexpensive comfort foods and everything we ordered was just right for that purpose - thick, creamy, yummy baked mac & cheese, tasty tater tots, a sublime bleu cheese & bacon burger. Nothing fancy but why would one expect that of Low Brow Lounge? Drinks were also of the basic variety - no infused vodkas or liquers - and were average strength for an average price ($7-8 cocktails). A good out-of-the-way spot for dinner before hijinx, I'd say.
