This is another one of those I-tell-mine-you-tell-yours threads which came to mind when random rambling thoughts this afternoon led to contemplation of somewhat common bar names I'm fond of. Add any classics you can think of. The ones I could shake out:

Harbor Lights

The Hobnobber

The Lamp Lighter

The Beachcomber

The Amber Light

(Obviously I like the idea of a place with a light in it.)

My possible all-time fave is a long-gone San Francisco jazz club of the 40's:

The Dawn Club

Just has such a lovely feel to it...

But also,

The Alley Cat
Easy Street
The Lunar Station


My favorite bad bar names

The Hotsy Totsy Club

Spitzer's Walnut Room

(Spitzer's is a real bar in Sacramento I discovered a couple of years back...)

My friend told me about two gay bars in N. CA
The White Swallow
The Man Hole

He's one of those who is always joking so these could be a joke. He say's they're real but they're funny names none the less.
