New Biker Bar - Crome


Recommended Posts

my favorite quote from the article:

"He imagines his typical customers to be couples who after dining at nearby Fleming's Prime Steakhouse are 'looking for a place to go to get a little nutty.'"

what more could we ask for? - nutty RUBS!

How Dallas!  This place won't last. 

PRINT IT

And FWIW, how many of y'all would consider yourself "glitzy."  Is that anglo for "bling?"

From Websters:  Main Entry: glitz - Extravagant showiness

Anglo bling.

I love it.

jt,

my remark wasn't about rejection. It was about my theory on the amount of money spent on a woman being inversely proportional to the quality of the woman... B)

...as well as the type of woman you could expect to meet here, i.e., golddiggers hunt for gold in goldmines.

I guess I just don't understand the negative attitude to Crome. Is it because it's not your thing? You won't see me there, but I can't blame, or judge, rich people for enjoying their money in ways that don't make sense to me.

I can`t wait to see what type of crowd this place attracts. The bikers with money that I have seen are usually dressed up like Rob Halford, for those that don`t know who that is, lets just say the guys from Mary`s could fit in, and never be noticed. This is going to be to cool, can`t wait. (sarcasm)

i suppose it is because making fun of "RUBs" is so easy -  :rolleyes:

and waiting for some folks from west alabama ice house to come and kick their asses might be entertaining as well

Yeah, it is too easy. Besides, one who judge's his worth by his pretentious display of wealth deserves nothing less.

However, it could be fun watching people who think hard work is carrying a laptop with a longlife battery in his briefcase, manuever those hogs and dogs around. :P

Besides - it just sounds gay (silly) to ride a 30,000 dollar motorcyle to a bar to get a Martini & lobster taco

Classic. That could be a good topic for a short film.

I have nothing against this bar. Their are plenty of other places I make fun of, but this one takes the cake.

Long live West Alabama Ice House!

i think it funny that everyone that is ripping on this place has never even been there. In fact it is a really nice place, the staff, the interior design, the drinks, the music and ESPECIALLY the people.

don't come down on something just because it isn't your idea of fun, or if maybe, just maybe you are a bit jealous.

You don't hear those rich people talking poorly about your West Alabama Icehouse.

If you have so much aggression about this place, simply don't go, you won't see us 'Fickle 500' at your dive bar.

So what if some rich guy has a motorcycle, big deal. There is no difference in a rich man or a poor man owning something. I'm sure the rich man works just as hard for his money than the less wealthy, in fact, he didn't get rich doing nothing.

And those gold diggers you like to poke fun at - don't forget that women work too. And not all of those pretty little faces are looking for a free ride. But then again if you offer the test drive honey, it is only polite to take the wheel.

Perhaps you should go there, leave your pre-convieved notions of what kind of place it is, and enjoy yourself. Look at the nice bikes and have a drink. You might find that hte finer things in life aren't so bad.

htownhottie, perhaps we were being a bit catty about the patrons and their attempts at manhood by buying an expensive motorcycle. And I certainly didn't mean to insult a working girl like yourself. Perhaps I will come check the place out. How will I know which one you are? Do you want to give me a sign?

true, i've seen plenty of yuppies at the ice house...

and i don't think anyone here suggests that this bar has anything to do with "the finer things in life"

O.k. guys I have actually been to this place, I didn`t post my experience, I didn`t think anyone cared, they probably don`t, but here it is anyway. I went opening Fri. night, seems one of my friends is good friends with the owner. Upon arrival EVERY parking lot was roped off for valet, I was really pissed since you cannot park on the street, had to park at Pappas and walk as I refuse to valet. Met the owner, fake tan, moussed hair, crude remarks etc. Went inside, couldn`t see crap, velour and draped fabric everywhere (biker bar?) Went to bathroom. AWESOME. The bathrooms are bad ass, super mod. Got the heck out of there. My friend stayed, said it later filled with college kids. I forgot about the music, I don`t know what the hell it was (dance music?) but it was horrible and not suitable for a STRAIGHT biker bar.

Please take this info with a grain of salt, it not intended not be mean or spiteful, just info so anyone wanting to ck it out will be armed with info.

Greaser, the Chronicle story that inspired this story tried to make the place sound cool and hip, but it was clear to most of us that what you experienced is exactly what it would be...expensive drinks for posers. Hence, the derision.

Glad to hear the ____ter is nice, though. Bars don't place enough emphasis on cool looking ____ters these days.

Part of my conversation with the owner was about rental of the property, etc. Here is the crazy part, even though there has been nothing but bad luck at this location, he b o u g h t the building. WTF .

And yes I knew this was a poser/hokey bar when we went, thats why I was embarassed and did not want to post anything about my experience.

(see my other posts before I went)

I have heard from several people that they have already had a stabbing and several big fights there.  Apparently, it has been a busy first month.  I am NEVER going there again!!!!!

Hey maybe I will go back with action like that.

If we had a meeting there is would be very easy to pick each other out....just look for the people with style and common sense.

It's funny how one could start out his life poor - really poor - and then, through grit, perseverance, time, and just plain hard work, finally achieves a comfortable level of success, only to be ridiculed by those who chose to stay in their condition and not achieve the same success. Why is it that the same person who was poor is now looked upon as one of them by doing nothing more than pulling himself out of the condition?

It would seem that the man who has pulled himself up by his bootstraps, so to speak, is not ridiculed for his determination, or his resulting success. He is ridiculed for his for his conspicuous display of the trappings of his success, for his forgetting from where it is he came, for believing he is somehow a different or better man, now that he is a man of means, as opposed to the man he had been previously.

But, mostly, this man would not be ridiculed at all, for this man would not frequent a faux biker bar called 'Crome', for this bar is for posers, not real men of grit and determination.
