List RulesThe coolest fictional restaurants, bars, and other frequented by the main cast -- no houses or apartments

List of the best TV hangout spots you’d most want to frequent. This list includes all of the hottest TV hangout spots patronized by the main cast of each show. From TV restaurants where the characters work and play to bars to nightclubs to stores, these are the best hangouts on television - no apartments or houses, though. Vote up the coolest places.

TV characters have been gathering at hangout spots since the dawn of television. Remember Lucy Ricardo’s over-the-top antics designed to get her into the act at the Tropicana Club? Ricky Ricardo’s Tropicana Club is one of the forerunners of awesome TV nightclubs, whether they feature live acts. More recent examples include the Bait Shop from The O.C. and TRIC from One Tree Hill - both TV hangout spots viewers would like to visit.

 Some great television hangouts aren’t known for their excitement or charm. Take Paddy’s Pub from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. This great TV hangout isn’t much to look at, but it would be an interesting place to have a beer - and perhaps be served by a surly waitress. Or consider Monk’s on Seinfeld. Although the decor isn’t amazing, TV hangout spots don’t get much cozier.

 This list contains the best hangout spots on TV, the places you’d go with your friends if they were real. Vote up the coolest places, but no houses or apartments; these are the greatest TV hangouts outside of the home.
