Went in late at night and quite the scene going on. There are two levels and one was a bar for drinking and the top level had a live band that was good. There's a balcony too for looking out over the town. Fun place!

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.

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....More

Pompei Lounge is located on the third and fourth floors of Emilio's Italian Restaurant and offers a unique space featuring three private lounges and a dining room. Cozy up in front of one of our five fireplaces in the winter and enjoy outdoor dining on our patio or balcony in the warmer months. Pompei opens at 5pm and serves the same fine dining Italian menu as Emilio's until dinner service ends at 9:30 during the week and 10:30 on Fridays and Saturdays. Pompei stays open after Emilio's closes and serves a fantastic late night menu including freshly prepared gourmet burgers to pair with one of our many craft beers. The Lounge features a full bar including more than thirty beer choices, an extensive and carefully selected wine list and over one hundred distilled spirits. Locals and visitors alike enjoy quiet conversation in a lounge or one of the many entertainment options throughout the week including trivia night and karaoke as well as live music.
