I can't get the link . . . but I assume that the Bell in Hand and the Oyster House are on top of that list . . . both Boston tourist holes.
the hit and run is as good as any religion around this time of year . . .

Gruene Hall isn't on the list, but then, it is a dance hall, not a bar???


Built in 1878, Gruene Hall is the oldest continually running dance hall in Texas, and the Central Texas
birthplace to many great songwriters and musicians.

Bell yes, Oyster no.
I get it IF you from out of town and want to drink a very overpriced beer in a bar where Ben Franklin sat and where they announced to Boston that the Declaration of Independence was signed (town crier - - -- Bell in Hand . . . clever) but why locals p*** their money away there is beyond me . . . just too much money.

Have only been to Lafitte's, but I'm not sure that is orignally where the Lafitte's had their blacksmith shop. I'll have to look it up. I read a book about them called the Pirates Lafitte and I don't remember their blacksmith shop being on Bourbon. Regardless it is a great bar and I go everytime I go to Nawlins. Will be their on Friday night also. The others are on my someday I will list. Suprised to see Tobacco Road in Miami wasn't on there. Thought it was old, guess not that old. [/i]

Can't remember the name of it but I believe there is a bar near Thomas Jefferson's home that is supposed to be the oldest bar in the country and it's not listed here????

Been to 1 and 2.


The Bell in Hand isn't bad it is just very much a tourist trap. Last November we had friends visiting Boston for the first time, I asked what they wanted to do and they said go eat at the Oyster House and then go to the Bell in Hand followed by stopping at Mike's Pastry's. So it was one of those nights but it was fun because I don't get to those places much at all unless I am with out of towners.

I've only been to the Bell in Hand.
If you want an experience, go to a Jimmy Buffett concert.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
