bars

Bars across the world are as diverse as their patrons; Dive bars, Speakeasies, Cocktail lounges, and bars that capitalize on short-lived trends too ridiculous to name.

    Come for the beer, but what about the community?

    Come for the beer, but what about the community?

    With Britain’s coronavirus lockdown coming to an end, more and more pubs are talking up the possibility of pulling pints once again after July 4. Welcome as that news is, though, it is far from clear what a post-COVID pub might look like. For many publicans, there’s still some way to go before a ‘new normal’ can be ready.

    Bar etiquette for idiots

    Bar etiquette for idiots

    After 14 years in the hospitality industry (working in bars, venues and restaurants) I have held pretty much every role on those hallowed grounds from manager to lowly bitch boy. Now you may refer to these establishments as the local, the boozer, the hunting grounds and for some less than honest spouses the office. For me it was hell. Not because of my colleagues or working within a high pressure industry (and trust me 20 impatient drunk people makes for a pretty high pressure environment) no! The single solitary component that made working in a pub feels like purgatory is you, the general public! However do not threat. For I am here to amend your horrendous habits and wicked ways. And teach you the correct way to behave in a drinking establishment. In essence this is a guide on how not to be a dick.

    Prickly Elder: An Epicenter For Both Familiarity and Innovation

    Prickly Elder: An Epicenter For Both Familiarity and Innovation

    Isolated at the farthest western tip of Texas is a desertic and mountainous gem. With over 500 miles between it and Austin, its closest major Texan city, El Paso, Texas, has become a flamboyant hybrid of the American Dream and Mexican culture. Two miles south of El Paso is Ciudad Juárez, one of the most populous cities in Mexico. The only dividing apparatuses between the two major cities are the Rio Grande and four international bridges of entry.

    How Dive Bars Got Their Name

    How Dive Bars Got Their Name

    The term “Dive bar”brings to mind various images, depending on what you have seen or heard. Many used to call this type of establishment a “hole in the wall”, where using the terminology of the day, the riff raff would hang out to drink, gamble, and find prostitutes. Older movies would often show preachers outside of these places telling the sinners to repent. “Dive bar” is considered a colloquial term used in the United States to describe a low income neighborhood bar where the local folks get together to drink and or socialize. Dive bar can also refer to a bar or pub that is disreputable, in poor condition, seedy, sinister, disreputable or considered a detriment or blight in the community.
