Capture the Biker Bar Atmosphere at Home:
As a lifelong motorcycle aficionado and Harley owner, I can definitely appreciate the motorcycle friendly bar atmosphere. Up here in Wisconsin, where there’s a bar every 1/4 mile the majority of bars are “motorcycle friendly” which is simply redundant because all bikers are naturally friendly, but I suppose leather, dark glasses and tattoos might seem intimidating, so we typically avoid family joints like TGI Fridays or Applebees.
While love our local watering holes, and the whole point is the ride, these projects buil;t by our members really bring the biker / dive bar fun home. The typical biker bar theme features low lighting, Harley Davidson, Indian and various other motorcycle decor, hot chick beer and liquor posters, tap beer, good cocktails and a cranking jukebox.. and the name is always followed by “bar, tavern or saloon”. In some cases, you even get great parking as shown in the photo at left. 😉 That is an actual site member home bar.
After a long day of riding, nothin’s better than relaxing with a drink. At the local bar it’s a gamble whether you get a watered down drink or not. At home, you can be as heavy or light handed as you like, you’re in control. You can kick back and relax and not have to worry about getting back on the bike, which is safe and smart, especially if you want to have a few.
The only thing we can’t do anymore in public is smoke in the bar, and watch your language.
Free to do as you please!
At home you can pretty much do as you please. Of course we’ve pounded it into your head already that drinks are cheaper at home and you’ll save thousands there, so that’s a given. You can smoke and swear your ass off, plus you have the volume control on the tunes, and you can mix your own drinks for a helluva lot less.
Everyone Love a Dive Bar:
