Comic Book Bars Where You'd Like to Get a Drink

Real life is hard. Sometimes you just need a drink. If you're craving an escape from reality altogether, why not hit up one of the watering holes from your favorite comic books? These are all the comic book bars that may not exist in real life, but you'd definitely hang out in if they did.

From luxurious lounges and dirty dives to tumultuous taverns and pandimensional pubs, these are the best comic book bars to get a pint, a glass, a shot, a cocktail, or even an oil change. That last one's mostly for Transformers, but it's also not that much weirder than the booze you'd find in any bar in Gotham City. Even the seemingly ordinary pubs on this list of bars in comics aren't what they seem. Harry's Hideaway in upstate New York, for example, looks like a quiet bar, except that Wolverine and the X-Men regularly get into brawls there.

Vote up the fictional comic book bars where you'd most like to sit back, relax, enjoy a cocktail, and maybe watch Batman or Daredevil beat the snot out of some bad guys. Just be on your best behavior, or else you might end up in one of the worst comic book jails.

    The Bar With No Name

    The Bars With No Names are an unquantified number of underground hideouts haunted by the villains of the Marvel Universe. They are safes places to discuss villainy, unless one of your villainous brethren has a bad day that culminates in a drunken, super-powered killing spree or the Punisher decides to stop by to bust heads for information. It's probably not a bar you'd want to frequent unless you really had nowhere else to go.

    Josie's Bar

    This dangerous dive is in the heart of Hell's Kitchen, which means both Matt Murdock and his alter ego Daredevil show up regularly. Unlike the Bar(s) with No Name(s), Josie's has a strict no violence policy, so you can relax with your watered-down swill, comfortable in the knowledge that Daredevil isn't about to slap you around at any moment.

    You actually probably wouldn't want to spend much time in this Gotham bar since it's full of henchmen and operated by the Penguin, a notorious mob boss. Still, if you want to sip a cocktail and maybe catch a glimpse of Batman punching some hoodlum's lights out, it's your best bet.

    Nemedian Tavern

    Conan the Barbarian is too much of a rambler to commit to just one bar, but since he spends his entire nomadic existence in and out of taverns, he deserves a spot on this list. His carousing kicks off in the Nemedian Tavern in Kurt Busiek's 2000s comic book reboot. Seemingly every tavern in Conan is populated by topless tavern wenches who have nothing to do with the story.
