Auburn  has a new lounge on the way — The Session.

157 E. Magnolia Ave. will soon serve as an entertainment lounge following a conditional use approval vote from the Auburn City Council Tuesday night.

Although no one spoke during the public hearing, Ward 3 Council Member Beth Witten expressed support for the project.

“I think it’s a great potential addition to the downtown,” she said. “I look forward to visiting once it’s open, if it passes.”
