These are some pictures of "Dave's Bar". Don't let the fact that it looks a lot like a shed decieve you



Here is Dave's water supply:


And here is Dave's heating system:


And the electrical service:


And some of the electrical inside of the bar:


Ready for a cocktail from Dave's?

I've got plenty more pics of this gem if any one is interested, including more of the inside.

Looks like the sort of place mentioned in many songs....

"Two miles from town, cross the railroad tracks,
Turn right at the light, and park in the back..." {From "Good Time Charlie's"}

Is that 93 when these pics were actually taken? If so, is the place still there?

Hi Paul. Yes, these are from 1993. This was in the city that mother works as the chief building official. She closed the structure to occupancy and had teh board of health pay them a visit.

No, it is no longer there.

Love this guy, Dave!!!

Is Dave suicidal, very "frugal", or just an eccentric DIY'er?
(from the looks of things, maybe Dave is all three!)

Any type of Disclaimer to be signed before entering Dave's Bar?



Entering Dave's Bar is at your own risk.
If any injury results from explosions (due to the nice heating system), Fire (from either the nice heating system, or the really cool Electrical Service Drop / Electrical Outlets), or slippage due to leaks from Garden Hoses; Dave's Bar, Dave, any Employee of Dave's Bar - nor anyone else may be held liable.

Further signing of this disclaimer / waiver of rights constitutes Dave's Bar and affiliates to sieze any and all real properties for any reason, and to assume all patrons to be of 5150 status.

I've heard of drinking bars and fighting bars but that might qualify as a suicide bar.

I was told 5150 was a police radio code meaning the guy you are dealing is crazy.

D'OHH!!!
Sorry everyone - forgot to include the definition of the 5150 term.
Thanks to Jps1006 for the replied definition of the term!
