The Bambi

The Bambi

If a telephone booth could talk, the one inside a midtown tavern would tell a tale of life and death, as the Star reported in 2012. One night in October 1986, a patron there died in mid-sentence while chatting on the phone with his lady friend. Some say his spirit lives on at the Bambi Bar, …

The Silver Room

Little changed since the 1940s? Check. Wood-paneled walls, neon beer signs and a jukebox? Of course. Nondescript air in a mainly industrial area? You've got it at The Silver Room, 673 S. Plumer Ave.

The Bay Horse Tavern (shown here in 2008, wearing a banner in advance of Grant Road's widening) moved to its current site, at 2802 E. Grant Road, in 1958. It now has a Facebook page, which seems wrong (I mean, just look at that authentic joint!). But — and this makes me feel better — it list…
