Just opened a small but gleaming new bar in the best part of town, The Alphabet, 1950’s themed bar all polished chrome and plastic, with a juke box and frothy coffee machine.
Drop in when out shopping for a chat and a snifter.😃
The bar only has a few house rules, no pj’s to be worn, keep to an alphabetical order and be inventive.Free drinks for the surreal and humorous contributions.🤪

Could some kind soul wipe down the tables while I get the hang of this coffee machine ( it nearly had my hand off!)

Doughnuts CT!!!!!
‘Ello Dahlin’ ! Can I buy you a doughnut !
You’ll get a slap! Do I look like I eat doughnuts ?
What kind of bars are in your area. Or maybe I’m out of date .

Easy chairs. Preferably with one of those electronic get-you-up thingies for when we've had too many snifters and can barely stand.

Furry friends ( it’s a feline cafe/bar)😺😺😺😺😺

Get a free doughnut with your frothy coffee/ brandy!
Get three if you can guess which record I have just put on the jukebox.
Go on, guess!
