Would you go to an age restricted bar/lounge for 55+?


If you haven't been to one, then you haven't lived.
To watch the 'Waltz of the Wheelchairs' is so romantic.
Then, there are some of the wrinklies that use their dentures as castanets while gripping a rose between their gums.
If you are really lucky, you may see others pretending to be Errol Flynn and Basil Rathbone, sword fencing with their walking sticks.

I may just wash my face and comb my hair tomorrow, and go as Johnnie Ray. 🙂

Just visit any of the local VFW or American Legion halls. At least in this area, that's pretty much what they are, and they are full of ex supply type E3s sharing their combat experiences. No, I don't go there anymore.
I don't qualify for those groups, my Navy time was between wars, so nobody shot at me. It is still pleasant to tell "sea stories".

I would if it was a small, kind of dark and "rat pack" type lounge that had a juke box that only played Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Tony Bennett and Vic Damone. They were a bit before my time but I love listening to them!

When I lived in The Philippines I regularly went to bars that had retired men from a wide range of countries. Many of us joined bar pool-leagues and we competed against other bar leagues.
The vast majority of those men came from, the U.K. , USA and Australia. Though now, I understand that South Koreans are making an impact.

What, a bar stuffed full of old people? Happy hour would have to be set to 11AM, nap time 1 to 2, and the bus pick up to ship 'em all back to their Del Webb community no later than 3:30. There would be no topless dancing on the bar countertop....just sayin'! :sleep:
You might be surprised that the retirees in The Philippines start drinking beer well before noon and keep going until their woman picked them up for dinner at aprox 7pm.
I swear, some of those guys must have a hollow leg. I don't know where that put all that beer.

We do not go to bars usually, unless when travelling and out of curiosity. I like the bar/restaurants in Italy where children can go also I like the tapas bars in Spain. Would not go specially to a "restricted"bar, I like a mix of ages!
