Do you have a local pub/bar/wherever that you go to?

I think my local pubs suck and judging by how few people younger than the age of 35 go to them regularly it seems fellow under 35's seem to agree. Has the pub scene lost this generation? Will the young people of today grow old and then go to pubs because they're old and lonely?

In fairness though the pubs in Bangor are pretty good because its a uni 'city' (lol) and on the right night they can be a nice environment. Wrexham is utter shite though. UCH Y FI.

I don't go to them cuz they're filled with scum.

There's 2 nearby, one's further away and another that's also a fairly fancy restaurant but it's hidden along a country road with no pavement and is about 2 miles walk smh

My town is very small. My town has two bars that are one block from each other.

The only thing my town has more of than bars are churches and hair salons.

Not a regular place, no. There are restaurants and such that my wife and I frequently go to, but we're not on like a first-name regular basis.

We don't really go to "bars" just for drinks though, we usually go for food as well.

Our favorite place (had the best cocktails) more or less closed earlier this year so that bummed us out.

There's a couple of local breweries we frequent.

That concludes my blog

yeah.

technically two, but the one was an sort of upscale seafood place and they just went out of business.

i never go because while it's not really a long walk, walking back to my house requires going up a ridiculously steep hill that kills my legs/lungs.

i might be able to get my brother to pick me up now tho once i have the money to go out again.

although last time i tried to go there for my 21st birthday i immediately turned around at the door because they were having some kind of live piano night and it sounded bad.

I live in the middle of my country's capital city, which is also fairly small, so there are plenty of pubs. I live in a residential neighbourhood so the closest "popular" pub is like 3km away. But from then on there are plenty of pubs, and even 3km is pretty close (I just take the bus and arrive in 5-10 minutes)

However I don't really go to pubs or have the "pub experience". I.e going to a bar and just sitting down talking and having a drink. If I go out with friends I go out at clubs at night or go to their houses and talk and have a good time there. 80% of my friends live in the outskirts of the city, and there are no pubs there so we have to meet at their houses so that must be it.

I used to have a local pub in the last place I lived. It had a great community spirit but the village was so small the number of people drinking their couldn't sustain it. It has since been converted into 2 houses.

Where I now live (a couple of miles away) their used to be 5 pubs, one of them shut a couple of years ago. I can see others following. Their just aren't enough people going out for a drink anymore. Pretty much all of the pubs go through phases where they have to close. Landlords can't make a profit, the pub closes for a couple of weeks while the owners find new landlords. Pub gets renovated/gets new landlords, then they can't make it work and it happens again in a continual cycle.

The only one actually in my town is more of a family-friendly restaurant than a bar and it closes at 11, so I don't go too often. I do go once a week for trivia night, but it's mostly just to see frands and not for the actual bar.


I can drive about 20 minutes in any direction and find a good one though.
#27
Yeah I have a few locals. One local nearby is the sort of place that has tons of shit on the walls and ceiling. Heaps of character, does crab racing on Wednesdays which is good value but I haven't been to it on that night in years.

Quote by Diamond Dave
I almost do but it's really too far to be walking distance, big shame, love the pub.

The closest one to me serves crap unfortunately.

We have about 6 or 7 pubs in town here, I frequent about three of them. There's another I'd rather go to a lot of the time because it's smaller and quieter, but my friends hate it for some reason.

Nice Do the crabs get eaten later or are they like, actually professional about it?

When I was overseas I went to a trivia night at a Pub in Edinburgh that gave out free Mac N Cheese at half time

EDIT: I also wish Australia had the musical culture that a lot of Irish or Scottish bars have, where people sing along songs and shit. That just never happens here and it's kinda depressing. My favourite pub in town is an Irish pub that does Irish Traditional sessions once a month, and I've been thinking of taking my guitar down and getting involved, but I keep forgetting.

There seems to be a resurgence in pubs in my local town but it's only pubs that have switched their focus towards serving real ales. Pubs that were once on the brink of closing down forever are now thriving. Selling hand-pulled cask ales seems to be the way forward nowadays. The only pubs around here outside of the town centre that are surviving are the ones that turn a blind-eye towards drug usage/dealing.

Yeah, in my hometown, there used to be a bunch of really scungy pubs that just served cheap crap beers, and as a result, had cheap, crap people patronising them, but a lot of pubs now are spending money to clean up, put in a nice range of drinks and try and get rid of the dirty crowds.

I think that some pubs believe it's worth the risks. Of course the pub gets a bad reputation but if the patrons are high on drugs they are likely to drink twice as much as they normally would. They need to work out if they would make any more money if they cleaned up their act. In alot of cases it's easier just to let it slide.

Not a fan of bars, too loud and too expensive.

Although I was forced to go to a casino today and the bar there was the only thing I was spending money at.
#37
I used to have a place I would go to just about every week, but then it closed. And then there was another one about 15m next to it, but that closed as well. And then I moved away, but apparently the second one opened again and then closed again over the course of three months.

There are two pubs I now go to mostly, but not very often.
#39
Nearest one is definitely a rowdy, tejano/biker bar. Never been though, but I'm pretty sure the one that was there before that was closed because someone got stabbed.

There's one my dad likes to go to, but it's more of a neighborhood bar, and we're not from the neighborhood. Plus it's a hole in the wall kind of bar and I don't like it as much.

If I ever want to go out for drinks, I pretty much just go to a restaurant with a bar. Or this place downtown that has tacos and frozen margaritas.

There's a bar near my apartment complex though I don't have anyone to go with and fear looking like a lonely drunk if I go by myself.
