ultra lounge

ultra lounge
 n.— «It was happy hour at a nearby “ultra lounge,” whether or not patrons knew what was meant by “ultra.”…“Ultra” is something of a hyperbolic reference to the less-than-ultra-surprising mix of offerings: cocktails, live music, full dinner menu. But, hey, you can get pan-seared scallops while you sip your gin.» —“A Dot-Com City Comes Back After the Collapse” by Josh Sens in San Jose, California New York Times May 20, 2007.
