The Crow Bar

A grungy old tavern in Bradstowe famous for its family of nesting crows in the attic.

World / The Isles of Orlend / Bradstowe / The Crow Bar
Welcome to The Crow Bar. You look like you need a hard hitting drink!
  The Crow Bar is a grungy old tavern situated in the city of Bradstowe. You'll find it across the road from The Bent Copper and just next door to The Bearded Clam.   The bar is famously named after its large nest of crows that have taken up lodging in the rafters. The establishment was once a bustling inn, but the feathery new residents provided such convenient loyalty against thieves and trespassers that the owners decided to let them stay. Sacrificing the profits of the attic rooms cost dearly to start with, but the cheeky crows soon became a crowd favourite and really put The Crow Bar on the map as a great venue to get wasted & chat up some birds.   The bar is frequented by tough folks who work even tougher jobs. In order to maintain order when things get rowdy, the barkeep has a menacing red crowbar tucked into his belt.

You have no idea how much I adore the fact that the entire article comes full circle, due to the barkeeper having an actual crowbar at his person :D

In only got the pun by reading the comments, I feel derpy. Also, I can imagine the sign above the door being a big metal crowbar shape with the letters hanging from it!   This is great!

I want to try those drinks, though! Especially Lava Lover. The name of this place made me chuckle, I love crows, and I love the pun.

I didn't even know there was a prompt for this; I clicked on the article the moment I saw it in my notifications because I saw the pun in the title and *knew* this was gonna be fun! I LOVE wordplay and terrible puns!   " The Bearded Clam" = I'm *still* giggling   "Get wasted & chat up some birds" = I died!   You did not disappoint (you never do! we are one billion percent entertained!
