Otis Day & the Knights played in the hit movie
Established 1949, the Dexter Lake Club has built a long history as a popular cafe, bar and live music venue. The large, bright neon sign that sits atop the high roof line is an iconic symbol along highway 58 just outside of Eugene, Or. The sign, along with the thick roadhouse vibe made the Dexter Lake Club a perfect setting to film the "Road Trip" scenes for the movie Animal House in 1977. Weekly you'll find dedicated Animal House fans seeking out this famous landmark to take pictures and remember the 5th largest grossing comedy of all time that broke all the rules of political correctness and spawned dozens of like-movies after it.
