We went here for drinks and appetizers. Very cute outdoor spot. Drinks were good, fried mozzarella was very tasty. Nice, relaxed atmosphere.

I like their willingness to would around food allergies. The top floor lounge is a music hang out for young adults to gather and have fun.

My husband and I went to the Pompei Lounge to check out an Indie band that was playing there on a Friday night. There was no cover charge, and the place was full of different levels (lots of stairs) and neat places to sit. They even had a fireplace in a quaint little "parlor" off to the side. One note... More

I was told I needed to go to this place because the drink prices were reasonable (true) and it was a great place to just chill out (also true). It really is one of the more unique places I've been to. Emilio's is the restaurant on the first floor and the food is really good. Upstairs are three levels of... More

We were passing by in Staunton for one night, looking for live music or at least some night life and we had a great time at Pompei. Obviously, mostly locals hung out there, all of them fairly well practiced at Kareoke and friendly with outsiders. The three storey decor with many small rooms and terraces is quite charming but most... More

This is really where you can get a flavor of how the left and the right can mix powerfully. Scott and Rachel's brother are fascinating as is Tamara. Listen to music, the Italian hamburger is to die for and the owner from Palermo and the waitresses in the pizzeria are incredible. GREAT

Not sure what the other reviews are going on about. My experience at this establishment has always been positive. Friendly staff, awesome service and great drink prices. They have live music on weekends which is a plus. As far as the review from New Years Eve is concerned (I was there that night) I think the following should be noted:... More

Every time I've been there, the staff was unfriendly and asked for tips. I'm sorry but that is very unprofessional in my opinion. One time in particular, the bouncer told us "It's customary to tip your bartender", even though we were planning on doing so at the end of the night. I believe it's not customary to ask for tips...
