Some photos of Hoot County Saloon which is right near the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston.








If you ever find yourself stranded at the airport be sure to take a cab here (be sure to go to the one on FM 1960, not JFK), and order the "Hoot County Special", also known as a nipple beer.

This is an interesting site as well -

I visited some when I was there recently and got great pics. Also Lamb and Flag is very old. The thing is, no matter how long the place has been a watering hole, the interiors as we know them are Victorian; the idea of the central bar, etc.... pubs used to have a small opening in the wall where customers would walk up and order a drink from the attendant inside. I think it is the Lamb and Flag which kept their old barmaid's window, but built a new central bar.
I liked the Cheshire Cheese, too....

It was built in the late 1700's, but burned to the ground in 1812 when we were invaded by American troops. It was rebuilt in 1816 and has been open for business ever since:

One other thing to note about this bar is that this is where it was signed into law outlawing slavery in Canada making Canada the second nation to abolish the use and trade of slaves.

Also TB, this picture is inside the old Core Digital Pictures owned by William Shatner (Now the Fox n Fiddle Toronto). His painting hung over the fireplace. I've been in it few times before it was a pub. So Kirk himself would have spent several hours in this room.

I didn't even know this thread existed! Since yours truly is also a fan of bar and grill and sports bar type of establishments, I figured I would contribute...

Had some dinner and drinks last night at a sports bar and live music venue called Stonewalls, on York Boulevard, within walking distance of Copps Coliseum, it's in a plaza

Inside... they did a good job with the brickwork and making it look "lofty"

the bartender told me it's been open for 3 years and it's doing well!

The awesome bartender recommended the Lobster mac and cheese, so good, with garlic toast!

I broke down and had dessert, too, a peanut butter blast piece of cake or pie or something…

Here's the Anchor Bar in Jackson Square, downtown Hamilton, Ontario. This is the first franchise location of the famed Buffalo, New York birthplace of the Buffalo chicken wing. It's only fitting the first Anchor Bar location in Canada be in Hamilton, because it is rumoured that Hamilton was the first Canadian city to offer Buffalo-style chicken wings.

The wings here are very close to what you get in Buffalo!

I was fortunate enough to walk in on the DAY IT OPENED!



Inside looks nice...




Here's some wings!

Couple of my local pubs in the Inner city suburbs of Paddington and Woollahra in Sydney. Originally a working class suburb in Victorian times, there were pubs on pretty much every street corner, many still exist and many have become houses, art galleries etc.

The London Tavern



The Paddington Inn



The Royal Hotel



The Lord Dudley

A more modern, up-to-date establishment in an old building.

The Shark Club in CityPlace building in Winnipeg:











BTW, the Shark Club was a featured bar during the Sochi Olympics on CBC when during Team Canada's gold medal run!

Here's a couple taverns that I visited on my trip to Boston in May. (I had to post these before Taller, Better beat me to his pictures of the same places!)


The Bell In Hand Tavern claims to be the oldest continuously operating tavern in the United States, having opened in 1795. (It acknowledges that it was closed during Prohibition, however, and so in my opinion, this distinction is dubious.) The original location of the tavern was on Elm Street, around where City Hall is now.

Another historic tavern in Boston is the Green Dragon Tavern. This tavern was opened in 1714, but the building was razed in 1854. The tavern was reopened/relocated in 1993.

The Bell In Hand Tavern and Green Dragon Tavern are located about 20 feet from each other, on Marshall Street in the Blackstone Block, which is Boston's last surviving section of 1600s street plans and names.

Nice pics!!! Thanks to your good advice I knew exactly where to go to find the things I like! First, I'll start with my favourite pub in Boston, The Bell in Hand. Even though the pub has moved a few times since it's origins back in the 18th Century and therefore I can't really think of it as the oldest pub, but at least it has always been The Bell in Hand, and it really and truly fits the building it is in now. Once in a very long while as soon as I enter a building I immediately feel "at home", and this was surely one of them. The openness of the bar reminded me of New Orleans, and the location on the narrow little cobblestoned street reminded me of the North of England. The first proprietor back in 1795 was Boston's last town crier. When he retired he opened a pub and named it after the bell he rang (Hear Ye, Hear Ye, and all that! ):















Boston's famous Clam Chowder!





A room with a view:



Technically this is not a pub, but it is so darned interesting I couldn't resist posting it. It is said to be the oldest continuously running restaurant in the USA, dating from the 1820's, but the building itself was over a hundred years old when Ye Olde Union Oyster House was new. I didn't have a meal inside, but I love the look of the building's outside:












I saw three more pubs that I believe are owned by the same company. First, The Green Dragon. The sign claim puzzles me. Greatly. As Xzmattz has pointed out the name was resurrected in 1993; and the building which housed the original Green Dragon with its basement used by Revolutionists was long ago demolished, on a completely different street in Boston. Hmmmmm.......



Looks great from the outside, and reminded me of pubs in the UK (without the American flag bunting, of course! )





The inside wasn't very interesting to me so I didn't stop by.

Also in that group of pubs is Hennesey's, which apparently was voted best Irish Pub in Boston:



It looks great from the outside; I stuck my head in for a look and the interior looks pretty ordinary. The third pub owned in the same group was Durty Nelly's. The owner tells a colourful story on the website about the name being inspired to him by a stall seller back home. I should mention that it is also the name of one of Ireland's oldest and most famous pubs dating back to 1620.

And while I'm at it, I'll re-post this from another section I had put it in this past summer. It is an old Tavern here in Toronto:

It is now a museum, but once a month they have a "Thirsty Thursdays" event, with food and drinks in a recreated pub area. The cage from where the drinks are sold is an authentic style for the time. Interestingly, the "bar" as we know it today where you stand or sit beside a wooden bar was a later Victorian idea. But 184 years ago you would walk up to the cage and take your drink back to the table.




In one of the Inn's big stone fireplaces, they had a big cast iron pot of stew cooking. Also, they had baked two types of delicious rustic bread as well
for a hearty, but simple meal:



With a nice cold shandy (beer and ginger beer) it was absolutely delicious!



The rest of the house was not formally open, but I was able to take a few snapshots
of the other rooms:





The largest cooking fireplace was normally in the basements of
these old buildings, and that was referred to as "The Summer Kitchen"
as it was the coolest part of the building to cook:



the larder:

There's certainly plenty of good pubs, taverns, and bars in Boston!

Lancaster Brewing Company
Lancaster, PA

It's a restaurant/bar/microbrewery, all under one roof. The brewery is housed in an old tobacco warehouse. Many of the buildings in the neighborhood have that agricultural-industrial feel to them.
