"It's a remnant of another era. There's no mixologist behind the bar. If you were to order a drink with more than two components, you'd get the dirty look."


Doesn't sound like much of a cocktail lounge.

It's a dump.  The only time I drank there it was insanely crowded and was filled with all sorts of unsavory characters.  Its charm lies in its absolute lack of charm.

Wow, that was quite a lazy "article".
 
2012-09-17 10:46:19 AM  
1. Pat O'briens (New Orleans) Great bar. Lot's of room to drink. Great prices. A piano bar that can play or fake any song EVER written. Used to patrons that puke or can't hold their whiskey. A trough for the guys to pee in and a powder room for the ladies. Their specialty drink "The Hurricane' contains 3 shots of rum and liqueur. You WILL get 3 times as farked-up as the March of Dimes.

2. The Gibson Washington DC. This ain't no disco. This is a bar for people that enjoy a well coiffed and crafted cocktail. This bar has skilled mixologist. An unbeatable selection of top shelf brands and the bar staff has mad skills to do what needs to be done. Pussies and pretenders can go elsewhere. This is a real bar for real drinkers.

3. Dukes Waikiki (Honolulu, Oahu) Duke's on Sunday is a MUST. Henry Kapono should be enough to get you off your ass and down to the beach. Delicious boat drinks, mai tais, Waikiki sunset with slow dancing, sunsets, pretty wahines, cute surfers and canoe clubs. Tourists? You bet, but you don't live there anyway, now do ya? The savvy locals know that this is an awesome time for a lazy Hawaiian afternoon, ESPECIALLY SUNDAY!

4. Slim's Y-Ki-Ki in (Evangeline Throughway into Opelousas,LA) OR Fred's Lounge (Mamou, LA) This is a toss-up for best cajun-zydeco bar. Both have their own charm and feature some of the finest and most original zydeco artists today. A strong drink and an ice cold beer can be found at either joint. These places are the real deal. No BS. All races mix well and party well here at Slim's. They share a love of good music and playing hard & drinking easy after working hard. At Fred's 88 year old Tante Sue runs things now that Fred has gone on to be with Jesus. She gets by with a little help from the Guillory family. Both places are a shed/shack/temple to good times and good drinking. Fred's 'rule' is no dancing or standing on the cigarette machine. They start at 10 am on a Saturday morning. Your liver is scared.

5. Flora-Bama Lounge and Package Store (Perdido Key near FL-AL state line) Don't go here if you don't like fun. Sure they might have a Jimmy Buffet-like acoustic guy... thing is, Buffet used to play and hang out. The place is PACKED to the hub with cute babes and young guys. The popularity of the place has it divided into 3 or 4 separate areas. There is a beach bar overlooking the Gulf, a club-dance section featuring the latest and classics in dance/country/club tunes. There's an inside rock bar with the usual cover band playing indy and rock standards. There's a mullet toss, sugar white beaches and emerald green water out back.

Bourdain is an alright guy. I've met him and drank with him. He's got a great gig and dream job. He's probably been to a couple of these places. Everybody has that great bar story or that 'cheers' joint where everybody knows your name. I don't care if it's a pool hall or an asphalt floor with a mechanical bull, bars are farking awesome. Now buy me a farking beer you cheapskate. I got the last round.

We can share what we got of yours, 'cause we done shared all of mine.

Yeah, according to The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, which was published before Bourdain was born, there are up to three basic components that make a cocktail:

The base is the principal ingredient of the cocktail. It is typically a single spirituous liquor, such as rum, gin or whiskey, and typically makes up 75 percent or more of the total volume of the cocktail before icing.

The modifying agent is the ingredient that gives the cocktail its character. Its function is to soften the raw alcohol taste of the base, while at the same time to enhance its natural flavor. Typical modifying agents are aromatic wines (such as vermouth) and spirits (such as Fernet Branca or Amer Picon), bitters, fruit juices and "smoothing agents" such as sugar, eggs, and cream.

Special flavoring and coloring agents include liqueurs (such as Grand Marnier or Chartreuse), Cordials, and non-alcoholic flavored syrups (such as Grenadine or Orgeat syrup). These are typically used in place of simple syrup, and are to be used sparingly.

I love this guy. Why?

I like old-school places where they bust your balls when you walk in the door. Where a guy who's on TV a lot can be treated with the instinctive skepticism and derision that a profession such as mine deserves.

Because of that.

Also, his taste in watering holes is apparently phenomenal.

There's a place for bars like that, but too often they are sort of gimmicky, are out of whatever your first and second choices were, and have terribly kitschy atmosphere..

I'm going to miss No Reservations, but in all honesty, the show peaked a few years ago and it hasn't been as thoughtful as before.

Dahnkster: 1. Pat O'briens (New Orleans) Great bar. Lot's of room to drink. Great prices. A piano bar that can play or fake any song EVER written. Used to patrons that puke or can't hold their whiskey. A trough for the guys to pee in and a powder room for the ladies. Their specialty drink "The Hurricane' contains 3 shots of rum and liqueur. You WILL get 3 times as farked-up as the March of Dimes.

2. The Gibson Washington DC. This ain't no disco. This is a bar for people that enjoy a well coiffed and crafted cocktail. This bar has skilled mixologist. An unbeatable selection of top shelf brands and the bar staff has mad skills to do what needs to be done. Pussies and pretenders can go elsewhere. This is a real bar for real drinkers.

3. Dukes Waikiki (Honolulu, Oahu) Duke's on Sunday is a MUST. Henry Kapono should be enough to get you off your ass and down to the beach.

Your liver is scared.

5. Flora-Bama Lounge ...


I, too, recommend the Flora-Bama. Great place.

If you're ever in Tuscaloosa, Ala., try The Downtown Pub for a great dive bar. If your tastes are more expensive, The Alcove carries a great selection of craft beers on tap and in bottles, as well as some top-shelf single malts. It's a short walk between the two places, and I've wasted a few hours in each one -- although I'm not sure I'd say they were wasted.

Nice list. Pat O's is a fun place, but it tends to be amateur hour, especially on the weekends. Cosimo's is a much better French Quarter watering hole.

Is Flora-Bama still there? I had heard it was all but wiped away in one of the hurricanes a few years back. We used to go for the Mullet Toss years ago.

2012-09-17 11:31:33 AM  

bgflores:

Flora-Bama got rebuilt a few years ago.

Agree with you about Pat O's ... although there are so many damn bars in the French Quarter that I couldn't name you one of them other than Pat's ... except maybe Marie Leveaux's on Decatur. Tiniest bar I've ever seen. Drinks were strong as hell, though.

It's just a name. How many "Bar and Grills" have you seen where there hasn't been a working grill in thirty years? Hell, how many bars are called "The [something] Inn" despite being very clearly not an inn?

I have to say that he is spot on about the Double Down in Vegas. It's an awesome grungy dive where I was lucky enough to once play punk rock bingo as hosted by a Juggalo Santa. Awesome juke box, cool bartenders, best of all it's way off the strip so you don't have to deal with the neon haze.

Their signature drink is called Ass Juice, and $5 will get you an Ass Juice and a Twinkie. $7 will get you an Ass Juice, a PBR, and a Slim Jim.

If that doesn't sound amazing then I don't know what does

flipping channels, I came across the show "Bar Rescue"; host was wanting to bring in this "mixologist" girl to create some mashmallow-vodka/lime juice horror, some other douche to teach the regular bartenders to flip around bottles...
others can do as they like but if I walked in to my neighborhood bar and saw that crap... I would move.
I went in last weekend, sat at the end of the bar. Place was busy but the bartender waved at me. Minute later, he walked down, said hi, and slid me a glass of bourbon. I sat and read my book, he kept my glass filled until I told him goodnight, paid my tab and left.
that is how it should be.

Yeah, I like "Bar Rescue", but Jon Taffer isn't interested in creating anything with character. He turns bars into nice, generic money-makers. That's generally what pisses of the owners of the bars he remodels - his changes suck all of the personality out of "their" place. In the end, though, a bar is there to make money, and I can't really disagree with Taffer's mercenary attitude.

It really is awesome...especially during sunset.

The Irish Rose Saloon - Waikiki

I'm not sure if it still around, but I have a lot of love for that place mostly because they were the only bar not charging a cover during the year 2000 celebration.
