* ''Taltos'': ''{{Dragaera}}'' has a Subverted Trope with Valabar's of this series, where the food is so good that while assassins and others hang out there, it is a safe zone as they wouldn't be allowed back if they committed a hit there. ''Five Hundred Years After'' has a straight example. The restaurant Vlad's father owned was patronized mainly by House Jhereg, although it's unclear how many of the customers were actually part of the Organization.

* ''Film/Deadpool2016'': Weasel runs one wherein many criminals and mercenaries hang out, including Wade. They have a betting pool (called the Dead Pool) where they bet on people's deaths (Weasel [[VitrolicBestBuds bet on Wade]], which he bemoans after Wade gains his HealingFactor). Much later in the film [[BigBad Ajax]] and his cronies show up trying to find Wade and they threaten Weasel; whereupon [[HeartwarmingMoments every merc in the bar pulls a gun on them]].

* ''Literature/AtlasShrugged'': The bar where Jim Taggart, Balph Eubank, Wesley Mouch and the other [[DirtyCommunists villains]] hang out. It's designed to look like it's underground but is actually on top of a skyscraper. The basement design is symbolic of the fact that despite their wealth and power, they cannot aspire to greatness, they have to drag it down to their pathetic level. It's established that the drinks are rubbish so they only drink there because it's a fashionable place, which shows that they are comformists. Still, were it not for the bad drinks and the even worse company, you have to admit, it would be a pretty cool place to be. It looks underground, but it's not!

** And then there's The Mended Drum, "the most reputable disreputable tavern" in Ankh-Morpork; someone with the name Uglag the Invincible would quickly be proven not to be, but a child walking in to order a glass of lemonade need fear nothing more than a clip upside the ear (and that from the child's ''mother'' upon hearing [[ClusterFBomb their new vocabulary]]). It starts out as a straight example and evolves into a rather overt parody of this kind of establishment as the series goes on and Ankh-Mopork becomes more civilized. As of ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', the {{Bar Brawl}}s are partly [[ProfessionalWrestling choreographed]] and have a formal points system.

* The Bar With No Name, in Medina County, Ohio (of the MarvelUniverse) - infamously the location where the vigilante Scourge of the Underworld disguised himself as the bartender to assassinate 18 supervillains (who had ironically gathered there to discuss how to deal with all the recent Scourge murders). Marvel's Bar With No Name has multiple branches; there's another one operating in New York City.

* There is one located in the ''ComicBook/SavageDragon'' version of Chicago. It's name is never given but it is a popular hangout for supervillains.
