Josephine's Cozy Corner Lounge, Omaha

What a fantastic find!

We had all agreed from how it looked on the outside (much like a house) that this was a bar we wanted to visit. Stepping inside the door, we were surprised to find that instead of being in a bar, we were in a tiled foyer with a turn towards a set of stairs leading to the basement. At the bottom of the stairs, past the anachronistic payphone, the bartender stood behind a jail door. Turning right, we found the entrance to the lounge in the basement of this house.

This is a bar that developed its personality in the 1950s thru 1970s, then stopped changing. The entire atmosphere remains frozen in that era.

The bartender is a very friendly guy who enjoyed talking to us about Omaha and his bar. Drinks are cheap, the patrons are quiet and friendly. This is a very relaxing place to hang out away from the crowds.

There’s a pool table, an old jukebox, and lots of quirky decor.

This is now one of my favorite bars and I’ll definitely be visiting every time I return to Omaha.
