Welcome to the ChatLounge IRC Network

The ChatLounge IRC Network was founded in November 2012 under the belief that users deserve a nice environment. The network was created as an alternative to a couple of other large networks at the time that in our opinion, had some shortcomings.

To get started, the best place is to use your favorite IRC client and connect to one of our servers. Alternatively, you may wish to use the web-based IRC client, though regular use is discouraged.
