Great place to "park" certain adults who need a time out! Nice atmosphere, bartenders and don't hesitate to initiate a conversation with other folks at the bar!

It's awesome and bartender Christian is fantastic. I've spent many an hour sipping cocktails and talking with the Bartenders and other guests. You can eat at the bar too. Some of my favorite CMs work at the Tune-in/50's Prime Time Cafe.
Say hi to Rudy the busser and Cousins Claire and Mandy, the best servers ever!
Yes I frequent the 50's whenever I'm in DHS!

Tune In Lounge is our favorite lounge on property, hands down. The atmosphere is great, with all the 50s props, and servers are the best. It's the first place we visit when we arrive and the last stop before we leave. Dave (from WI) and Alena always make us feel at home. And it's a great spot for a nice meal without the long wait for a table.

We love Tune In Lounge! We stop here at least once per trip. It can be crowded, but it seems we've always found a chair w/out too much of a wait. Bonus is that the Tables in Wonderland card is good here, so we get our 20% discount on drinks. :)

Can confirm. The Maowie Wowie is delicious. I ended up drinking one too many but it was definitely worth it. Pricy though.
