The Space Room

spaceroom.jpg

Alas, the fine old days of elderly chain smokers drinking vodka mixed with milk are gone at The Space Room. However, while the crowd has changed to hipster\frat boy\pseudo alcoholic (which, in my opinion makes it even sleazier) the decor, ambiance and overall ooze have not changed. Read more »

Holland Bar

3barholland.jpg

Located at 532 Ninth Ave. (Midtown West) Between 39th and 40th Sts. Wow. I didn't know this place still existed in the new New York City. I had to meet my friend in the area and I wanted to go to a bar. I looked this up on the Internet and thought it was safe enough. I ended up being 20 minutes late. I found my friend at the bar sipping from a bottle of Budweiser(yech) while slowly but noticebaly giving sidelong glances to the barflies.

There was this woman in her 50's, noticably drunk and just yelling to herself as she walked up and down the bar. Sometimes she would get a response from the bartender or apparently some regulars at the end of the bar. It was hard to say. Read more »

The Green Parrot

gp_slide3_1.jpg

The Green Parrot is off the main drag in Key West, so you have to walk a few extra blocks down a narrow dark street to get there. It's worth the walk.
A huge wooden parrot over the cash register requires "No Snivelling."

No paint on the outside or fancy remodeling on the inside, probably since it opened in 1890.

The barmaid is tougher than the average biker, there is no glass in the windows, and the parachute hanging over the bar is probably vintage WW II.

The tourists hit Sloppy Joe's, Ricks, or Captain Tony's, but the locals hang at the Parrot.
A Key West Ale on a hot tropical night in August goes down smooth and the Blues band on the small stage is blasting away.

It doesn't get any better than this.

Dirty Frank's bar

plee.jpg

What can I say, this is one of the oldest Sleazy bars around the USA.

After 30 years without running water in the mens room they finally got it running a couple of years ago.

Also what other bar have you ever seen that has potholes in the floor. The rats actually once chewed throuh the beer tap lines.

And the Clientele? Well Kkid Row, Doctors, Lawyers, Professors, Students, Artist, Muscians, etc, all walks of life and at one time ME.

The Post Time Lounge

In town alot and stay at the adjacent hotel for work. Alot of oldtimers country bar with younger women and men looking for a good time and to scam the older ones or anyone who they can leach from! Hotel connected to the bar makes it easy for regulars to meet people and party! threesomes take place in the rooms upstairs. 1 regular girl we'll call her small girl Darlene appears decent, (has slept with just about everyone in the bar, it doesnt matter if your married just party with her, give her cash, or take her on a trip with you (anything goes). She admits to and thinks nothing of one night stands and will stay with you. gains trust of other women and sleeps with their husbands and friends behind their back. Seen her doing drugs.

Club 404

Unpretentious neighborhhod bar. Great cheap steak specials for around $10, served by a waitress who calls you "hon".

Ernesto's

blaadjetijden.png

This is a great place! In the beginning of the evening Ernesto's is a Mexican restaurant, but after 22.00 it changes in a wild club. Especially during concerts the crowd goes wild, and so do the bands!! The Slackers, Jaya The Cat, The Movement, Green Hornet, The Staggers, The Paladins and The Celluloid Gurus were there before you..

De Nachtzuster

nachtzuster.jpg

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 »

Pod Jemiola

Actually, the 'l' in the name is a Polish l-with-dash, pronounced like a 'w'. It's Polish for "under the mistletoe", which is hanging from the ceiling. In the summer, there's also place to sit outside, next to the separate toilet house, to escape the smokey room. Inside, you usually sit on a log of wood, great to break your back over a wodka or beer, and there's only candles to light the place.

It's in one of the courts off Ul. Florianska 20, the busy shopping street in the center of Krakow.

The Sheriff

The Sheriff

If you ever enter Guyana, and I suppose you never will, this sleazy bar I recommend to visit.

The Sheriff is located on Sheriff street in Georgetown. It is not the safest place in Georgetown, but if you have a big mouth and some common sense, you'll have an ok time. A couple of years ago, a research pointed out that approximately 90% of all males and females in Sherif street 'got hit by the big truck' (HIV-positive). So if a beautiful girl asks for a drink, be ware, they are never what they seem. Read more »

De Klok

deklok.jpg

'De Klok' is a pub with a distinctive fifties-like character where you can meet all kinds of people, from the lowlife loser-kind (like me) to the highly educated and intelligent one's.
They've all got the same objective though: getting plastered...
The drinks are relatively cheap, and during the weekends you can go on 'til deep in the after hours (most of the time, huhuh).

IMO

imo.jpg

In my opinion IMO is definitely the sleaziest in the northwestern part of italy. On the outside it appears to
be a cheap wine retailer on a dark, non-descriptive square
in a degraded part of town, locked inside a grid of popular housing, a smelly river, a porno-theater.

Au contraire, IMO is open til late nights (sometimes) and the atmosphere is genuine. The drinks are extraordinarily cheap, service is "as is", meaning that ima (the owner's, imo, wife) will stare at you and mechanichally reach for
whatever you were drinking last. No point in asking as she appareantly will not understand and imo himself is too busy playing a game of "scopone".
Last time I checked a glass of wine was still under 20 euro cents and the collection of rare sub-brand liquors was
still intact. Read more »

Unknown

if downtown everything closes down you will have to go to the "carretera" the main road to managua.
thats where the disco's are and of course some sleazy bar.
take the road from hotel europa (which is not the main entrance to town) and ON THE WAY TO the "carretera" is on your left hand a "cantina" i forgot the name(excuse me but it was late already)
regular "ranchero's"blaring from the stereo but the funny thing was a ditch all around the place, i mean also under your feet if you sit at the bar!!!!
so obvious to say there is no other toilets in this place!!!
keep one thing in mind. if you have to vomit... the locals turn around and vomit against the wall
enjoy

The Drinking Fountain

The Drinking Fountain is in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston. It's one of those old-school drinking saloons that are fast disappearing these days and are being replaced with glitzy steel-and-glass type places all across the country. The Drinking Fountain has the good fortune to be on the same block as two other very renowned JP bars, the famous Doyle's and the Midway Cafe. Read more »
