Class is in session! Huntsville’s favorite former-high-school-turned-entertainment-venue has gotten better and better over the years! Here’s what you need to check out next time you’re in the area:
Lost Highway Lounge
Decorated with gem tones and midcentury modern fixtures, Lost Highway Lounge — or Yellowhammer Lounge as its nicknamed — feels like a world away from the rustic interior of its nearby neighbor. Whereas Yellowhammer Brewery caters to all ages, this space is a charmingly cool venue for the 21+ crowd only. Serving up craft cocktails and paninis, Lost Highway offers up a sneak peek into the back of Yellowhammer Brewery. The lounge doubles as an event space available for rent, so you can host friends and families in the trendy setting.
Hops & Guac
Hops & Guac isn’t your average Mexican restaurant in Huntsville — and we’re not just saying that because it’s located inside a renovated high school. The beauty in this restaurant is nearly everything is self-serve thanks to a wristband given to you upon arrival. The handy wristband keeps track of food orders and allows patrons to serve themselves up to 36 ounces of beer, cider, or wine from more than 45 taps lining the far side of the wall. You can also find a “secret room” of five bonus taps (just ask the waitstaff; they’ll point you in the right direction!). At the end of your meal of Mexican street corn and artisanal tacos with a side of cilantro mousse, simply return the wristband at the front desk to pay. It’s that easy.
What about if you want to check out Campus No. 805 early in the day? Say, for a midday pick-me-up? Offbeat Coffee is the place. This retro-chic coffee shop has made waves in Huntsville for more than its cereal milk lattes. The shop is also a vinyl record retail store that occasionally gives away free records to customers, too.

This LGBTQ drag cocktail bar is in the old art room near Straight to Ale. Drag shows are Friday and Saturday nights with performers from across the stage and region, and the Slipper’s Facebook page is regularly updated with future show schedules.
We'll go ahead and have an early dismissal with this list of spots to check out at Campus 805 but, there are plenty of extracurricular activities all throughout campus! Check out a full directory HERE.
