Fab Five Friday
Putting together this list of the best TV bars was a bit trickier and a lot more fun than I originally thought it would be.
Thanks for all your suggestions.
At first, I didn't want to include the Drunken Clam from Family Guy.
But after reading some of your comments, I reconsidered.
Here's my list of the five best TV bars.
1. Cheers from Cheers
The king of TV bars. How many scenes were actually filmed outside the bar? Everybody knows your name at Cheers, and no other TV bar could ever match it.
2. Moe's Tavern from The Simpsons
No Moe's makes The Simpsons something something.
3. The Drunken Clam from Family Guy
Dan Thanh was right. God drinks at the Drunken Clam. Talk about a powerful patron.
4. Ten Forward from Star Trek: The Next Generation
Where else could Capt. Picard turn when things went awry? Whoopi Goldberg was there with good advice and occasionally even a glass of illegal Romulan Ale.
5. Kavanagh's from The Wire (pictured)
A bar where dead police men are laid on the pool table before their funerals? That's old school, and I like it.
