So I was listening to Guy Clark’s “Dublin Blues” (I wish I was in Austin, mmm-mmm, in the Chili Parlor bar, drinkin’ mad margaritas and not carin’ where you are) and I got to thinking that I might like to take a drive to Austin one day and visit that bar. And drink a mad dog margarita, of course.
Are there any other songs that have actual bar or restaurants names in the lyrics? I thought it would be easy, but all I could think of is Warren Zevon’s "Werewolves of London that has two (Lee Ho Fook’s, which is closed now I think, and Trader Vic’s.)
James McMurty’s “Choctaw bingo” almost counts, but I think the pop, knife and gun place moved from from Tushka to Joplin. And I don’t think they had a bar.
Generic restaurants without the specific locations don’t count, like sucking on chili dogs outside the Tasty Freeze.
Where else can I visit and play a song?
