Hong Kong Bar

10331294.jpg

This place stinks, overpriced, open 24hr a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year (yes, including all holidays)

Located under a strip joint. Used to be a chinese restaurant (explains the name?)

Crowded with local drunks- BUT- since it never closes, sometimes have "common people" as guests when everything else is closed.

Antonio's Nuthouse

Great dive bar, somewhat cheap drinks, many pool tables and pin-ball games, all kinds of junk hanging on the wall - not "cute antique junk" - REAL JUNK! Free peanuts and resultant peanut shells all over the floor. Good selection on the jukebox. Many bar-fights have happened on a regular basis. Near Stanford university but outside the limits of their "no hard alcohol" rule that was in effect for many years, Antonio's is not just a student hang-out - many sorts of drinkers, drunkards, bikers, barflies and other classy low-lifes can be found there from the entire north end of Silicon Valley. Bad, but usually not totally gross bathrooms. There used to be a good "Hoffbrau" on one side of the room but now there is a Mexican resturaunt that serves OK food during the day. Read more »

Magic Gardens

In the hoppinest neo-frisco current flavor-of-the-week urban renewal project section of portland called the "pearl district" or "chinatown" (used to be called junkyville or gook village before gentrification, hang onto your fuckin wallet!), nestled between the ample, loving bosoms of sparkling new high-rise high-density housing and old remodeled warehouses posing as living spaces, sits a demure semi-discreet lair known as Read more »

Daniel's Bar and Grill

Daniel's Bar and Grill has widely been known to University of Cincinnati students (mostly underage) as the greatest bar to go and find a drink without having to worry about getting carded. Although students are able to get a drink, you have to be careful of the smoke, patrons, but not the food. Daniel's has pretty good food for a sleazybar, but you will notice those patrons who rarely leave and if they do it's only so that theire significant others don't report them missing (as if they'd care enough). When in Cincinnati, you have to at least stop by Daniel's to soke up that atmosphere that only can be described as a sleazybar.

Café on the Rocks

On the Rocks is the only way to drink your whiskey!

It's located in the centre of Deventer's very own 'the brink'.

Inside ont he rocks you will find a lot of prostitutes and the whiskey comes with a nice live rockband.

And if you want a good fight, pop a few rounds or want to get popped, only act if you are the man and you will get it.

Grand Union

Grand Union

drunken bums, street folk trying to sell you things (from sunglasses to electric beard trimmers), rowdy natives, $1.50 draft, live country bands every night, ladies and theyre johns...on hastings.
in fact, there is nothing classy about this place.

to quote the vancouver courier:
"It's 3 o'clock on a Wednesday afternoon and tables at the Grand Union Hotel on Hastings Street, three blocks west of Main, are almost full."

The Glass Slipper

Long long time ago you had the so-called Combat Zone in Boston's chinatown.
Somehow it did not all get zapped by
prurient city administrators who may have been among the
patrons at this it-s-all-in-your-face-naked-ballerinas joint.
The Glass Slipper was spotted on a side alley on a very
rainy night. The room is long and narrow and as you enter from
the side you will be surprised by the glorious vistas awaiting just around the corner. We particularly liked the no-cover-charge, no-id, no-question-asked door policy that conveniently cut the foreplay short and gave our quivering senses an eyefull. Read more »

The Greasy Spoon

Not a bar per se as no alcohol is allowed but definitely a place to check out for breakfast after a long night drinking.
Opens really early in the morning, the crowd mixes end-of-shift night owls and construction workers.
The (greasy) food is supposed to coat your stomach good before a new day begins/

Suggestion: bring your own booze.

2 way inn

The oldest standing bar in Detroit, it survived riots and the collapse of MoTown, plus an endless stream of bar fights The 2 Way has also doubled as a store, a jail, a brothel, and a dance hall. Read more »

The Board of Trade

Board of Trade Saloon

This place was established during the gold rush and in the 70's & 80's the bathrooms looked (& smelled) like they could have been the originals.

In the late 1970's the bars in Nome stayed open 24/7 and the BOT almost always had a few overly refreshed patrons sleeping at the tables in the front of the saloon.
The house band in those days (I think they were "The BOT Band") had the worst sound system, etc which was all moot because the only thing the patrons needed was the back beat for scootin' around on the floor. Read more »

The Walabeba

Walabeba

This place is recommended to us by our dear friend, Uncle Sam.

The Walabeba is located on the Awudome (street). The place is one of many in Accra, but since it is located in the home town of Sam, we post this one. It is open 24 hours. To enter you have to go through a gate, before you reach the compound. The Walabeba is owned by a lady. If she's asleep you just wake her up and the bar is open. There is live music and of course you'll have to drink the 'kill me quick' (Akpeteshi, the local drink made of roots and destilled palmwine).

If you ever go there let us know, and bring a bottle of Akpeteshi to Amsterdam!
