  • Hooters
    Although it now has more than 430 locations in 28 countries, Hooters wasn’t always welcomed by the public. In fact, when it opened in October 1983 in Clearwater, Florida, the founders of the restaurant were “quickly detained for impersonating restaurateurs,” according to the company's website. But the restaurant was able to prove it was more than just a pretty face—that it was serious about serving tasty American food and frosty brews—and its popularity exploded in the decades to follow. Amid its beach-themed vibe and flat-screen TVs, Hooters still fuels appetites with original chicken wings, burgers, sandwiches, and fresh salads. Of course, nobody carries those casual eats and icy pitchers better than the Hooters girls. To complement their friendly smiles, their uniforms harken back to the ones the original waitresses wore in 1983: orange hot shorts and white tank tops with the emblematic owl on the front—though that owl has lost its Lionel Richie perm.

  • Gym Sports Bar
    Rich Schmutzler and Nick Leonard, co-owners of GYM Sportsbar, had a lot in common: they were both varsity athletes in college, loved to watch sports, and felt left out as sports fans in the gay community. To fix that, they founded GYM Sportsbar in New York City—a dedicated sports bar that played video and audio simultaneously. The concept caught on so quickly that they decided to open a second hub in L.A. “When we first started, I got a lot of Scooby Doo faces, like, ‘huh?’” Schmutzler told the Los Angeles Times in a 2009 article about the business. But soon, those questioning looks turned into smiles as mostly male crowds began flooding to the West Hollywood GYM. Today, they host weekday happy hours along with gatherings for recreational sports teams, alumni associations, and other local groups.

  • Rock & Reilly's
    The legend behind Rock and Reilly's Irish Pub is a tale taller than Paul Bunyan. Reilly, it's said, was born in Ireland during a bar fight, and took a man's life on that first day. His father lost him during a poker game at the age of two, and Reilly won himself back within six months. Then, at the age of three, he set out to cure America of what he saw as a disease: prohibition. The remedy, of course, was whiskey.? The stories may be out there, but the pub itself couldn't be more tangible. Irish-inspired pub food, such as corned-beef sliders or a cheese steak made with Irish cheddar, help soak up the booze, while Reilly's Hooch, seven draft beers, and more than 50 whiskeys keep spirits raised.
