* The Korova Milk Bar in ''Film/AClockworkOrange''. Alex and his droogs always assemble at the bar to "sharpen themselves up" for a night of ultraviolence by sipping milk laced with narcotics. The decor of the bar is stark black and white, with all furniture composed of white statues of contorted, naked women, some of which dispense the spiked milk. It's never firmly established whether the other patrons of the bar are as violent as Alex's gang, though it seems unlikely: the woman singing ''Ode to Joy'' and her companions appear shocked when Alex strikes Dim for mocking her, and a bit flustered when he nods to them. All in all, it seems more of a trendy (or what would have been called "mod" at the time the movie was released) scene bar where (some) bad guys happen to hang out.

* ''Series/TheWire'' contains both variations: the Barksdale crew plotted their nefarious deeds from within Orlando's, a strip club that Avon Barksdale used as a front. Meanwhile, Blind Butchie's was a more dingy place, but where Stringer Bell, Proposition Joe, Omar Little and drug-dealing prison guard Tilghman were equally likely to patronize, and equally welcome. It became the location of choice to parley with Omar as of season two.

* ''Series/Daredevil2015'':
**Subverted with Josie's Bar. In the comics, it's one of these, with Josie being extremely apathetic to the amounts of drugs, weapons, and even worse stuff that her patrons tend to sell or trade. In the show, Matt, Karen and Foggy are patrons, and have helped Josie out with legal issues. They also spend their after-hours at the bar playing pool.
**The season 2 premiere sees Foggy visit a crowded Dogs of Hell biker clubhouse to get info on a Punisher attack. He ends up encountering a particularly nasty bunch at the pool table and only narrowly manages to escape without injury.

* In the British comedy ''Film/TheNakedTruth'', Terry-Thomas' character tries to bribe a couple of thugs in such an establishment, filled with shadowy working-class thugs who spit on the floor. When his bribe, a pearl necklace, breaks apart, everyone in the bar dives after the pearls spilled on the floor - to pick them up for him. The so-called BadGuyBar turns out to be a ''Salvation Army'' cantina.
