Grassroots Tavern

1grassrootstavern.jpg

What a dump this glorious hellhole is.

From the decaying bathrooms to the thousands of names scratched into the wooden walls and tables, Grassroots is truly sleazy.

I almost cried when they put in new speakers, and a more modern jukebox.

Alas, it is still disgusting, and I will always cherish it when I am there.

The Big Bang

The Big Bang is located in Calle Botella in the Raval area of Barcelona. This bar is never very busy and it's not the sort of bar you'd visit on your first date to impress him or her with your exquisite taste. You won't meet a lot of interesting people here and if you're looking for sex, you'd better go home and do it yourself.
However, it has four advantages:

Het Masker

Opens everyday around midnight and already closes again at about three hours later. In the meanwhile, this is the place to meet everything that's low-life in Amsterdam. From worn-out hookers till massively agressive drugdealers, from drewling alcoholist till students so full of them selfs they 're puking on their own shoes (and, if you're lucky, on yours. Lucky? Yep, cause there's your reason.) Read more »

Sports Corner Tavern and grill

SC_Exterior.jpg

This place hasn't been painted, remodeled or cleaned since 1976 when it opened.

Drugs run rampent and the shadiest people hang out there slinging coke, weed, and just about any pill you can think of.
I have never smelled a bathroom as bad as this in Chicago.

However the bar and waitstaff is hot. They might be hookers though.

De Ster

Be prepared for some loud music before entering this place as it's official subtitle is 'Home Of Metal History'. You can hear anything from Manowar to Mayhem and from Rammstein to Morbid Angel. Run by Johnny and his wife Mieke this place is one of the best hangouts in Holland. It opens between 22:00 and 23:00 at night and it closes at about 04:00 am on regular days but on friday and especially saturday it doesn't close until Johnny's bored. And he doesn't get bored quick when there's drunk people to talk to!

The beer is fairly cheap compared to the surrounding bars in the centre of Groningen. Order bottles though! Read more »

Ruigoord

The artistic and cultural roots of Ruigoord go back to the early sixties. Late sixties rolled a wave of innovation over the Western world. This movement became known as the student movement and the hippie and flower power movement.
It was the time of the power to the imagination.
Netherlands had its own local precursors into the Provo movement and the Amsterdam scene artists.
Provo and related groups such as Deskundologisch Laboratory, Insect sect, and the Amsterdam Balloon Company argued since the early sixties artistic and entertaining manner the major social issues of the time at issue. Read more »

FunHog Ranch

Upon entering the FunHog Ranch, you become aware in a matter of seconds that the owners are from Iowa. This is a good thing. If only for the Pork Tenderloin Sandwich.

The FunHog sits between the Las Vegas Strip to the west, and the "Hood" directly to the east. Status means nothing once inside. You could be a boss on the strip, but you are just a "Hog" within those four walls. There is no black, white, brown, or yellow skin. There is no straight or gay. Just "Hog".

Business owners, Dr's, Lawyers, crack whores, street bums, secretaries, dancers, constuction, coaches, politico's. Just "Hog". Read more »

De Nachtzuster

The last time I visited this place it turned out that the name was changed to the owner's name but I forgot his name ;-)

Not really important cause it's still the same old dark, smokey shithole you're looking for after hours.

The atmosphere really depends on what night you come in, could be lost drunk students, or coke sniffing criminals having a party. Read more »

My Brother's Place

This place is open from 7am to 2am everyday, although you could never tell. During lunch hour it attracts some local heroin addicts and construction workers looking to score smack and strong drinks. Otherwise, it is a good place to find sleazy hookers, a communicable disease or the occasional toothless barfly. A great bar if you like to live on the outskirts of normal, functioning society...which you obviously do or you wouldn't even know about this site.

Update: My Brother's Place has been closed for some years now.

The Crow Bar

This is where "everyone thinks they know your name"! If you're not in the mood to be approached by drunk rednecks, don't go there!
Can be fun when someone you have never seen in your life, comes up to you and puts their arm around you saying, "Hi buddy...how's it going?"....and you're wondering if maybe you were too drunk to remember who this person is????
The bathroom has a sign: please hold handle down for 10 seconds!....If you don't do this, you better run!
Karaoke night is fun....most people who can't sing will try and think that they sound like a pop star. Sometimes you have to leave because it sounds so bad.
There are some good pool shooters here...just leave your weapon at the bar. Read more »

Hole in The Wall

hole in the wall

Great little sleazy bar with live blues music. The roof leaks, the bathroom stinks, but what cold beer and great greasy hamburgers. One of the bartenders, Kiki, weighs about 300 lbs and looks like she washed her hair sometime last year wants you to do body shots with her.

Grossman's Tavern

grossman.jpg

Hearsay, but from a trusted source, and with a website promoting the place through reviews such as "The crowded tables will be full of half-filled pitchers of draft beer, and the air will be layered with a smoky haze." and Everything is covered in a layer of grime and ashes.

This is not a case of bad housekeeping; this is character. This is the real deal.

It's at 379 Spadina, about a block south from College.

Becket's pub

This has got to be one of the most sleaziest bars I have ever been in.

Of course its so nasty they dont card people because if they did, they would lose half the customers!

In the bathroom u can run your finger across the table and have enough cocaine on it to get a horse high.
Sex, drugs, drinking, the usual expected scene in a sleazy bar.
