Bars. America's attempt at Pubs. We drinking experts have one thing to say to you. You guys fail so fucking hard that it is no longer funny. "Bars are for Life, not just for Drinking."
A Bar is a place to drink. Dark, dank and dingy, with a mirror behind the bar to mercilessly show you your depression, they have minimal appeal outside some 80's TV sitcoms.
A bar owner is not happy for his bar to simply be a bar. Most have themes - that perversion of nature by marketing that has no bearing on real life.

Drink, fight and watch ESPN. That is pretty much it.
