The Yale

The Yale

There are a lot of "Blues" Bars around the world, but the creepiest, dankest, most-ready-for-demolition and, therefor, one of the best is the old Yale bar in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

This dimly lit brick building would surely become a mass grave in the event of the predicted "Big One" earthquake that experts say is due any time now, and the musicians try their best to emulate said big one with the shear volume of their playing. You can walk in perfectly capable of hearing birds sing, and leave with as much audible ability as a granite boulder. The compensation for this is the fact that these guys not only play LOUD, they also play exceedingly well. Read more »

Big Jer's Titanic

Overlooking the Carribean Sea and central market. Forty-five minutes from Guatemala. American and Belizian food. Cold beer and mixed drinks with friendly people. Local information center.

Black Watch

blackwatch_prefRes.jpg

This nearly windowless neighborhood Scottish pub is located right in the heart of downtown Los Gatos and is considered by some to be the area's best dive bar. The place is popular with its customers--from bikers to college students. Those who frequent the pub are invited to bring in their own pizza, burritos, sushi and other take-out food to satisfy any hunger pangs, and when it's not crowded, they can even bring their dogs in to rest on the dark carpet. All of this adds to the atmosphere of this sleazy bar where the night owls don't emerge until the sun goes down. Things can get loud, crowded and rowdy. Read more »

The Zanzibar

Zanzibar

Affectionally known by all as "The Pansybar", this 24 hour joint is located on KIng street in Newtown, a suburb not unlike Greenwich Village I suppose. Decked out in faux Morrocan, the leopard print carpet, imitation fire and cheesy mid nineties euro-pop make for a mix which is similar to the feeling you get after your 16th Black Russian at 5:30 am....probably iit's only redeeming feature is it's infamous badge draw, which has hiteight Grand in recent weeks. Oh, that and the fact they will serve you 16 Black Russians with a smile. Nuff said...

Lee Michael Restaurant

The biggest and dirtiest hole on Queen Street West. At least the watery draft is only $1.10 CDN! This means that only about a 1/2 hr. of panhandling can get you decently wasted! A popular hang out for the homeless and cracked out, the daily live entertainment of fistfights and old drunks pissing themselves is unparrelled anywhere in this city. Stop by any time - open 7 days a week.

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 »

Hotel Do-De

The smell of stale beer and fresh piss assaults you as you open the door. Angry but usually immobile locals mutter menacingly from the 6 barstools. Gennesse 12 Horse Ale drips constantly out of the one tap.

Add some dangerously bad nachos and a country western jukebox out of the mid-70's and it's sheer sleaze heaven.

Doug & Marty's Boar House

2421933-Doug_Martys_Boar_House-Moscow.jpg

The Boar House is so sleazy that you can even lose respectable friends by just mentioning that you have been there, or intend going.

They serve a range of imported beers, and some cheaper local Russian beers too. There is also a range of American-style food.

If you are very unlucky, an ex-pat will corner you (and this is the favourite ex-pat bar in Moscow) and bore you to death with one of two topics: (a) "Russian women - have you noticed how they have two legs and two arms? I am so sexually aroused by them OR (b) "I hate this ********* city, my company sent me here, I am earning a huge salary but blame my complete social inadequacy and friendless status on Moscow - rather than my natural inadequacies". It is worth moving away if cornered in this way. Read more »

Beer Garden

soi7bg.jpg

The Beer Garden is on Sukhumvit Soi 7. Unlike most bars in Thailand, the girls in the Beer Garden are all free-lancers. Some of them are stunning; some are quite plain. The Beer Garden is very busy in the evenings and is a very good place to meet sleazy people. The food is fair, the drinks are fine. The bar is not air-conditioned which makes it a bit less popular in the heat of day. There are no dancers and its easy to carry on conversation. Check it out.

Splash Number 3

This is you typical ice house, with a few extra features!
The place is nasty, unsanitary, no heat or ac, pending on weather conditions, the owner's personality is suitable to and excerpt in a gangster movie and the bar maids sell the cheapest brands of bar liquor and make you think you're getting premium. At least the price tells you this. The glasses are not washed and sterilized according to health rules, and I know that I myself as well as others, have gotten ill from an night out at Splash 3 in the wonderful city of Bacliff Texas.
