When I was a kid my dad used to take me to bars with him on occaision. Two that I remember fondly were:
Ducky's - named after the owner (Ducky Detweiller) who was also the town's mailman, he'd bring me baseballs and stuff that he found on his rounds.

And, Stitcheberry's, again, named after the owner.
Both were long, dark, narrow bars with Bromoseltzer on tap. What ever happened to that stuff?

My favorite classic bar is the Tube Bar in Jersey City! The owner, who friends and customers knew simply as 'Red', was probably one of the most pleasant, soft spoken guys you'd ever want to meet.

You didn't really even have to fuck with him - just ask to speak to one of his customers!

I just purchased a batch of swizzle sticks and 3 of them are from the Kum Kum Room. I haven't found any reference to it here or on critiki.




Some other great bar names are the Mineshaft (Long Beach) and Oilcan Harry's (Austin), both gay bars.
Lee Harvey's (Dallas), Happy Endings (Hollywood), Double Wide (Dallas), Cock & Bull (Dallas), Muddy Waters (Dallas), Under the Volcano (Houston), The Poop Deck (Ft Worth), Mother's (San Pedro), Cock o' the Walk Bar (Oklahoma City) and many, many more...

Always liked "Hog's Breath Inn" though it's not exclusively a bar.
A long gone HB beer bar hangout:
"The Getty" later renamed "Friar Tuck's"
was a real dive on Beach Blvd just before PCH.

Surfside 16, a ghetto bar. I see this every day. Miles from Lake Michigan. Why Surfside 16? I ask but no one knew.



The asphalt lot on the left is site of West North Avenue Natatorium (1902 circa 1995}. For public bathing and swimming. Cross street is 16th Street. Mystery solved.

What separates Holler House from dive bar?



Is it all the hollering and laughter and arguing and fighting because everyone is having a good time? No. The hundreds of bras on ceiling? No. No beer on tap? Only bottles and cans. With exception of Holler House, I have never encountered in Wisconsin. But that is not the reason.



1908 bowling alley. Requires a person to operate; no machines.

Glad to see a fellow Wisconsinite giving props to the many silly bars up here behind The Cheddar Curtain. In my part of the state (Upper Nort'west) we have many. Some of my favorites include:

Chicken Chaser's Bar and Grill

Moccasin Bar (creepy stuffed-squirrel dioramas)

Pooh's on the Pond (no website)

Jump River Rosie's (She sold me my first beer when I was 16!)
