The glittery unicorn bar might fail.  It might be a great success.  

I was inside Electric Circus only once, for a few seconds.  It seemed a bit depressing and boring to me, but that's just my perspective.

The idea of a unicorn bar seems ridiculously stupid, but again, that's only my perspective.  The whole concept sounds worthless and inane to me.
 


You are not in the 21 to 26 demographic.


But then, I don't appreciate bars much anyway.  Ever since Mom's on east Admiral (NOT south Lewis!) and Snakepit on 15th east of Lewis went out, bars just haven't been that interesting...

OK, this got me thinking.   What makes a good bar, and what are "the best" (I know it's subjective) classic bars in Tulsa?  I'm talking places that don't serve food (or at least not much beyond some bar food), maybe have a pool table or shuffleboard, etc.  The main attraction is sitting and drinking and talking, etc.  Also has to be safe enough that I'm worried about getting out alive.

I used to love the old Arnie's before the move, and I like the Mercury Lounge, and even Soundpony if I'm in a bike-centric frame of mind (but that doesn't really fit what I'm thinking).   

Suggestions?

Where was Arnie's before and when did it move?

Mod is too busy editing my posts about urban planner and walkability expert Jeff Speck ... but you can start a new thread if you wish, Tulsasaurus Rex.

On M.B. Cherry Street, where Drake's is now, iirc.

It closed there around 1998, I think, and then re-opened in the Blue Dome district around 2000.

I remember Arnies on either 13th or 15th in the late 70s.  I don't remember which.  I went there after class with my professor and class mates after class was over (a few times).

When I was in the Navy in the 70s, I went to a dive bar because I liked the people. I would not have gone there except a couple of friends "dragged" me there.  I became good friends with the weekend DJ and stayed at his place for a month after I got out of active duty.  I don't know how this helps this thread but it is my experience.

The two I mentioned would not be considered "good" bars by your parameters.  They were like the old Avalon was before it became all steakhouse - "sawdust on the floor to soak up the blood from the knife fights" kind of places...   Old, wild west style, I would say.  Avalon was for cowboys, Mom's and Snakepit were biker bars...and not the mini-van Progressive insurance kind of biker...

Used to be another one that was a little more upscale around the corner, north of 15th on Lewis - right behind Massad's and the Delman - can't remember the name of the place for some reason.  Knew several who got into serious knife and sledgehammer related events there - one died...David Marshall - RIP!
