Founded in 1902 and survived prohibition. Oldest bar in Corktown, Detroit


Smiley’s Schooner Saloon in Bolinas, CA (just north of San Francisco) is worth a look. http://smileyssaloon.com/

“21” Club in NYC. It was originally a speakeasy. Founded in 1922, the first location was in Greenwich Village called Redhead. Then it was relocated to Washington Place and renamed Frontón. Then it was moved to West 49th St. and degraded as Puncheon. Finally, in 1929, it moved yet again to 21 West 52nd Street and called Jack and Charlie’s 21,shortened to 21, where it remains today.
