Praise the Lord! For both beer and this excellent Pun Shop Name, spotted on the famed Pier 39 in San Francisco, California. Well done Mr. Marc Burns for another cracking find. Cheers!
This is brilliant. Not only does the name of this nightclub accurately describe what to do on the dance floor, it also accurately describes how the dance floor was made. Spotted by the very groovy Mario Dreosti in St. Kilda VIC.
This PSN will surely pose a problem for the bouncers. Spotted by Linda Saffioti, who no doubt tested the policy, in the East Village New York.
I’m told the legal fraternity of Manhattan, New York, find this HILARIOUS. Surely where the expression ‘sober as a judge’ originates. Spotted by Marc Burns.
An excellent location-based Pun Shop Name. Times Scare is a haunted house, theatre and bar located near, of course, Times Square New York. Spotted by Marc Burns.
Presumably this bar is owned by Gene and has a strict dress code. Spotted in Nashville Tennessee by Marc Burns.
Tu Rum Bar or not Tu Rum Bar? At the Spanish Club in Sydney Australia I suspect the more rum you drink, the more you Rumba. Spotted by first time punter Nadia McCrohon. You got one Nadia!
Watch out for the pair of Baracudas sitting near the entrance to Bar Acuda. They lure you in with tapas and wine and then SNAP! Spotted (hopefully in time?) by Linda Saffioti in Hanalei, Hawaii.
Though we’ve been trying to keep Bundaberg Rum out of New South Wales for many years, there is no formal embargo in place. The best we’ve managed is an In-Bar-Go at Brisbane Airport, where Queenslanders can load up before their flights to Sydney.
Near the breaking ocean waves of Bondi Beach NSW you’ll find Mocean, a subtle PSN. Hmm.. perhaps after a few of those $10 jugs of Sangria you might feel a bit of mocean sickness?
Spotting Pun Shop Names in foreign languages can be tough. But on a recent trip to Luzern, Switzerland I found this ‘wunderbar’ PSN while searching for a place to watch the UEFA Champions League final. Well done ‘Tschuppi’ on your absolutely ‘Wonder Bar’… err, bar.
Cohiba: A brand of Cuban-made cigar originally supplied exclusively to Fidel Castro and high-level officials in the Communist Party of Cuba.
Cohibar: A bar in Sydney’s Darling Harbour where one can go to smoke such cigars.
On a recent trip to Bali I was a bit disappointed to find only two Pun Shop Names. Seems the Indonesians don’t have the same love of PSNs as our friends from Thailand. Oh well, I guess Thistle have to Doo – a bar near Sanur Beach.
