      Thank you; I'm ashamed I didn't remember to include those two. May I use them?

      By the way, you wouldn't happen to remember the name of the bar One-Thumb owned in the Thieve's World books, would you? It was the Vulgar Unicorn...

        Of course

      I'll add these, if you don't mind. Great picks.

        Yes, by all means, add them. That's why I suggested them!

    Of all the gin joints in all the universes in all of fiction, I had to walk into:

      Great Groucho! I am not worthy to breathe the same air as you!

      Revised: I should have said I was shocked, Shocked, to realize I'd overlooked two bars from that movie...

    Probably the fictional bar to appear the most often in films, books and TV is the Last Chance Saloon

    But perhaps this doesn't count as it is both fictional and non-fictional

      Many thanks, ++, and it's included.

      It's interesting how there's any number of (in)famous bars in SF and fantasy, but so few in detective stories and westerns. You'd think the bars in High Noon or Shane or The Magnificent Seven would be memorable, but none of them come to mind.

      So The Last Chance Saloon gets to stand in for all of them.
