How about some sports bars? Here's a sampling of the bars located around Fenway Park in Boston.

That sports bar in Toronto is impressive. I also like your pictures of McVeighs.

It was a novelty to go to once, but it is waaay too big and cavernous for my tastes. I like them small and cosy!!

Your "Baseball Tavern" looks fun!

The Cirio Café is quite an institution in Brussels, Belgium. Opened in 1886 it kept all the glory of its original decor . Starting out as an Italian delicacy shop it evolved to a café later on. They even invented their own drink an "half en half". Meaning half white wine with a half glass of champaign which they serve in front of you eyes.

What a beautiful old cafe! I hope we can see some more nice ones from Europe, and around the world!

Here's a look back in time to an old college bar in Newark, Delaware. The Stone Balloon was in operation from 1972-2005. During its time, it was named one of the top 25 college bars in the United States. It hosted countless musicians who either performed here before they got big, or somehow were booked here after going big. The list includes performers such as Pat Benatar, Metallica, Dave Matthews Band, Robert Palmer, Hall and Oates, and most notably, George Thorogood (a Delaware native) and Bruce Springsteen before they made it big.

The layout was simple. The original tavern portion was small and cramped, and had a few stools. Up a couple stairs was a slightly bigger room, cmopletely empty of furniture, and that opened up into an even bigger room, which was empty of everything except the bars, the stage, and the soundboard. When you were here, you stood up, and on Thursday nights, when mug nights were held, even all of the bare rooms were too small for the crowds.

The place was a dump by the early 2000s (I was old enough to go for its last 2 years), and reaked of sweat, dirt, urine, and other foul smells from the decades. But there was no better place to be in town on a Thursday night than here, when mug nights were held and it was $1 drafts on light beers.

The exterior picture is from the bar's last few weeks. The interior pictures are from the last mug night ever at the Stone Balloon, and show the crowd begging for yet another "one more song", almost as if getting the band to keep playing would keep the bar from closing down.











To this day, just about everyone with memories of the Stone Balloon wishes it never closed. A condominium is on the site now, and the "Stone Balloon" name was preserved in the new wine-tasting restaurant, but most see it as a

An interesting note: Bill Stevenson, who started the bar and owned it during its entire time, was once married to who is now the wife of Vice President Joe Biden.

I don't have any exterior pictures, but here are some interior pictures of Joe Pistola's, a little slightly-Western-themed bar on 15th Street in Philadelphia.

Some backstory: these pictures were from the night the Phillies won the World Series. I had driven up with several friends because everyone knew the Phillies would win the game, and we wanted to celebrate in the streets. Every place in Center City was packed to the brim, literally, and most places were forced to keep people outside to watch the game. After getting rejected at our first bar, we spread out fast across the block to find a place that would let us in. We were originally told at Joe Pistola's that there was no more room. Then that changed to "2 people can come in". After another 5 minutes, someone else was allowed in. And so it continued until we were all in. I had noticed when I got in (I was the first in) that the fire code authorized a maximum capacity of 22. I counted 65 people in the bar at one point. I was about halfway back and in these pictures I counted 35-40, clearly over the maximum capacity. But with a title at hand, who cared?

Nice! Not really a true drinking establishment in the sense of others posted, but it does give a nice view of how drinking and the beach are combined into one experience.

I'd say the Bedford Academy is probably the best example of how the traditional English pub style has morphed to become a more "Canadianized" version, or more accurately become a Toronto style of popular pub. It is reminiscent of an English pub, but has its own feel:





One of my favourite local beers; made from a hundred year old recipe. This is what lager beer used to taste like, and it is delicious:



some French onion soup:







lots of old Toronto photos on the walls:





The other type of popular drinking establishment in Toronto are the more American style "bar". I don't have any photos of the inside of a good example of one of these, but I will come up with one soon!

Looks like lots of happy people all over the world enjoy drinking places!!

Yesterday popped into a chain pub on King Street that I couldn't get into on St Patrick's Day as it was too full. Seems to be an old banking building, or some kind of office building built in 1905, but only recently converted to a pub:









I had Shepherd's Pie, with nice veggies for lunch:



The old board room, I suppose:
