Back in the day, there was this corner bar in a more progressive part of the city called the Velvet Dog (been closed awhile now). To me, it had all the components of a cozy local bar with no underlying threat of violence nor pee on the floor. It was dimly lit, chill atmosphere with a lava lamp type ambiance behind the bar. More importantly, it featured an impressive menu of local craft beers and artisan cocktails, complete with a beer garden out back that had a bocce ball court. Nothing fancy, but definitely had charisma.

I would definitely call a bar with a beer garden and bocce ball court out back fancy pants. Sounds like a fun place though.

This is what "RED" in Vegas should have looked like. They also served the shittiest rum and coke of my life. Thanks again, Dear Booze!

The bocce court was not much more than a gravel pit and the "garden" was a concrete slab so not too fancy I guess. Still a good haunt though.

I'm also a huge fan of rooftop bars. How are those not awesome?!

LOL yep. Down there in the cellar out of sight to not ruin the beer garden ambiance.

One of my favorite bars in Fresno. The Captain's Brig is a true dump. Ugly prostitutes, the occasional two bit gangster wanna-be's, a bartender who looks like Joe Dirt, cheap drinks... what else do you need?

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Give a drunk man tortilla chips, Velveeta and a hair dryer and he has nachos.

Well a plush toy claw grabber for one...

And there better be a condom dispenser if the prostitutes are that ugly. But other than that it looks like a fine establishment indeed. The nautical theme really ties it together.

I like that life-saver decoration. Immediately gives me this sailor bar vibes.

No condoms needed, you`re the first customer those ladies had since the Titanic stopped by
