The Napalese Lounge is one of Green Bay's longest lived bars.

The bar was relocated from 515 S. Broadway to 1351 Cedar Street in approx. 2000, where it continues to thrive. The bar has long been "home bar" of the Argonauts club, which holds numerous events there, including the annual Mr. Daddy's and Daddy's Boy leatherman title contests.
