Bar Fly???


My friend Chuckeroon at Richmond Upon Thames Daily Photo does photos from time to time that he has titled "Bar Fly". I always enjoy the bars/taverns he surreptitiously ( or maybe not) photographs. He was my inspiration for this shot. Last Friday night I went back to the Bottle Tree with my friends Sis and Bill. Bill's a photographer too. Unlike 'roon, we blatantly whipped out our cameras and had a mini photo shoot right there. The younger set tolerates us, and we do appreciate that! You know from previous photos here, that the Bottle Tree is a fun and funky place. Today...... more proof!

Yes, Satan has a painless way for you to pay your bar tab

"99 bottles of beer onn the wall, 99 bottles of beer..." or should I say Cabernet?

Very lovely photo!

Lurid is the word. I think a special set of eye goggles are prerequisite for entering.

Is there live music or comedy?

what a fest to the eyes ...! i like the colors and the set.

to answer your question about the debris: i think it must be spontaneous. didn't see any orgnized group of people doing it. (i could see the location from the window of my office.)

Reminds me of a country version of the downstairs bar at '21' where they hang all sorts of business related icons that look like kid's toys from the ceiling

Daryl,
This ain't no "21", but it's a trip for sure.

'roon,
Yes, live music although I've never been there for that. If you look on my previous post, you'll see the big screen that they show old TV shows and movies on when there's no live music. I love that!

Bibi,
How about Chablis??HA

Thanks Eki!

It is a great place, isn't it? I have avoided it at night so as not to intrude on the young ones, but I'll give it a try some time.

I am still debating if the second picture is the best or the worst way to advertise for an ATM machines!

Ken Mac said...

mad colors and loving your new banner !

...and congratulations with your photos on Parisien Salon!!

Bob Crowe said...

The devil and an ATM in a saloon - what a perfect combination.

Jacob said...

It doth look fun and funky. I think Satan ought to pay, though, and not just provide the means!

Oh Satan, put it on my tab.

Virginia said...

AH,
Satan's been 'runnin' a tab' on all of us for a long long time! :) I'm LOL!

I think bottle trees must be an American 'thing'. My friend in Ohio has one - blue bottles. In fact i sent her some French blue bottles (not the flies!) and they survived the journey. What colours in this photo! Fabulous.

JM said...

Super, super cool!!! I would definitely love this place!

Katie said...

Great photos!! I'm SO going to visit this place someday! And now I know how I'll decorate my rec room (when I have a house with a rec room).

Maya said...

OK, next time we come visit, you MUST take us here. It's so funky and colorful. Fabulous!
