365 Days a Year


Established in 1982

by Jim & Sandy Russell the original owners

of Jim's Vista Lounge.
Jim's goal was to build a hangout for 

the guys and gals, to come from work.  Grab a cold beer or cocktail after a long day & bring in their wives for

cocktails on Friday night. 

Since the day Jim's opened the doors 38 years ago it was an instant success, 
& still going strong.

Due to the family inviting feeling you get when you visit, &

the lively upbeat vibe you

get when you walk in the door. 

Jim & Sandy have always gone out of their way to

assure their patrons, friends, family are taken care of. 


In 2016, Jim & Sandy sold the bar to their youngest of 4 children Kelly and her husband Gene Elwell.

Kelly and Gene  have since made some minor changes and

have been making improvements since.


But one thing remains the same, the friendly people along with the bartenders

who welcome you to join the fun, have a cocktail,

& always go out of there way to please all of their patrons. 


Kelly and Gene promise to maintain the fun inviting establishment

& look forward to another 38 years with old friends, new friends &  family


 Jim's Vista Lounge.


Please drink responsibly.....JVL bartenders always serve responsibly.
