12 Bars with Ridiculous Names
This famous roadhouse in Fairbanks, Alaska, certainly has a flair for the inappropriate. And just in case the name isn't indication enough, there are even signs outside warning that inside you'll find "adult humor" (aka boobs, "happy" bears, smoking, booze, and foul language). Plus, the on-site gift shop ensures that you'll have plenty of souvenirs to take home and help you remember your night of ridiculous debauchery.
Come on, how do you not laugh at a name like that? This fun, popular sports bar with three LA outposts keeps the mood "light" with some appropriately inappropriately-named menu items ("The Threesome" beer and wings special comes to mind). And of course, there's the slogan that says it all: Size matters.
It doesn't take more than a middle school level of French to get the joke behind the name of this Portland bar. And while the name may be a little silly, patrons are definitely serious about the popular Thursday trivia night where, fittingly, winners are gifted with shirts that read "I was 'The Shit' at Trivia Night."
Humorous on its own, the name of this D.C. bar only gets better when you say it in conjunction with its location (Adams Morgan). And though the mural of the voluptuous woman on the side of the wall may suggest other connotations, you have to assume that the name plays off the fact that this is a blues bar.
Somehow a serious name just wouldn't fit the vibe of this sprawling, "flea market-fabulous" complex featuring an Old West saloon, taxidermy, a lunch box collection, and a light-up dance floor.
Bubba's Sulky Lounge
Any legitimate dive bar whose name begins with "distinguished" earns a vote as ridiculous.
Although popular with the local college crowd for its giant fishbowl cocktails and frozen drinks served in souvenir bikini glasses," you have to cop to feeling a little goofy saying the name of this bar.
We've come to expect a bit of the ridiculous from New Orleans, so thank you to this beloved dive for not disappointing in the bar name department.
