I remember Area 151 when it was Lou's Lounge, the Tracker when it was the Pine Room, and most of the others are gone now. What was the Falcon Club is now Judy's Place, down at the Elbow. Is Jackie's still open in Waynesville. The Pub has been in operation since the 50's I think, and Steve's Place, under one name or another probably.. Not too sure about them, they may have been closed for awhile..

Oh, and yes the Country Club is closed, and I even remeber when it was the Big 3, and Ed's Engineer Club at the Elbow too. Am I officially the oldest member of the Pulaski County Web?

That's what I am thinking. I actually worked at Curleys flipping burgers, that ages me a bit doesn't it?

I DJ'd at Ramada, the Pine, Silver Star, and two years straight at the Top Hat. Far as I know I was the first Club Dance DJ in the county. I had just came back from Arizona and told the owners of the Silver star what is popular out there. I packed every club I played..
 
 
In my single days I hit them all. some aren't around anymore;silver star,top hat,sailors pier,dees bamboo lounge,ditties.
 
area 151 must have the best history. I went there when it was the tepee and the ace of spades.
 
the embers(now sidetracker) was ok.
 
I think the country club is closed now.
 
but which is the oldest and still open?

Snakehill tavern, Drennans little beer joint just down the street.
The wagon wheel
The Bluemoon on the south outer road.
I can't believe no one has mentioned  Jodies and the Old Buckhorn Bar.
Snakehill was made out of stacked Ammo boxes with egg separators used for ceiling tile.........

And if you were not old enough or it was sunday Indian Alice's in buckhorn.
Now who wins??

Oh, yeah, don't want to forget Jodie's ( which was nationally known) and Duffy's Tavern, which was below the Park ' N' Eat.. I will probably remember more later. My personal favorite was the old Wagon Wheel. But for heaven's sake don't forget the Jungle Room downtown, the Silver Star, the 921 Club. Lord, this area used to JUMP. Really dead now considering the comparison.

You're just faster, when I was posting my reply, so were you..But you are older, I don't remember the Blue Moon. That makes you the winner.

snake hill was packed at lunch. It definitly had character.

I don't consider it a bar, but we use to go to the turkey shoots on sunday at the vfw when it was down from the hub.

there was a lot going on then. it seemed to be more fun also.

red ryder really packed em in at the tepee.

The question was......oldest.......still open.

Most of them I see up above aren't open anymore.

I know I worked at Victory Pub in 1970 and it is still open. That's pretty old.

The Pub and what is now Steve's Place, whatever it's original name was. But it may not qualify because it was closed for awhile. But the Sidetracker was the old Pine Room and has been in operation for a long time too.

Leo's at one time was an upscale dining establishment and bar. I laugh now at thinking how expensive it was and was only for special occasions, when I can't even order pizza now for the price they charged for lobster, lol

Usually if her brown chevy truck is parked out front she is open. I beleive she is open every wednesday night as well. She had the cheapest beer prices in town the last time I was in there (around Christmas). If you don't drink it is still an interesting place to go to see all the stuff she has on the walls and like I mentioned earlier she is very interesting to talk to. I beleive her dad started the business

There was a woman killed in Crocker Cave after the bar was shut down. I need to do some more research on it to find the exact dates. I know some one that used to bartend at the Queen of Hearts and I think I might be related(step family) to one of the owners of it. Godfreys Hide-a-way was bought by Judy Dye and is now called Judy's Place. This is a great beer bar espically on Sunday afternoons. I beleive that is all correct but maybe Rick ought to check me out on this since he is twenty years older than me

Judyís place use to be called the Falcon club. There was a murder in there in the early eighties. I think Godfreys Hide-a way is the bar that is next to the post office. I know that was called the hide-a-way. I would have to ask my dad if she ever owned it.  I know she owned the Country Club. The Hide away has had several owners in the past. It hasnít been open years.

Whatever happened to Shorty?  I think her name was Dorothy Greer.  She is buried in Dunkard (Old Gospel Ridge) Cemetery but I do not recall what year.  Old rumor was that it was an argument over a bottle of Peach Schnapps.

On a slightly different subject, does anyone recall anything about a bar in Devil's Elbow called The Roadhouse?  Would have been early 50's, I think...

And, if I'm not mistaken.  I saw a sign on Victory Pub the other day that says "Marriages Performed Here."  So they are still in the business of marrying people.  There is an answer to a question on another thread.  People looking for a place to get married go to Victory Pub.
