* ''Disney's HouseOfMouse'' is a G-rated version. It also lets in villains, so long as they refrain from any villainy.

* Caritas on ''Series/{{Angel}}'' caters to good, evil and neutral folks alike, be they human or non-human. Popular for the drinks and the [[ItMakesSenseInContext psychic karaoke.]] It had magical protection to enforce neutrality; no demon (non-human, including vampires) could perform an act of violence without the sanctuary spell knocking them on their ass first. Unfortunately, [[spoiler: a demon-hunting gang of humans realized it didn't work on ''humans'']]. After that loophole was closed, [[spoiler:Holtz realized that it didn't prevent you from kicking an explosive barrel down the stairs into the bar.]].

* The German series ''Series/Raumpatrouille'' series has the Starlight Casino, where fleet and GSD personell of all ranks congregate to chat, flirt, talk shop and [[FutureMusic dance in some very odd "futuristic" dances]]. The ''Orion'' crew can usually be found here off-duty and has a fleet-wide reputation for its alcohol intake. The Starlight has a glass roof through which you can see the tropical fish in the sea above.

* The Dirty Robber from ''Series/RizzoliAndIsles''. Starts out as a stereotypical cop bar with cheap beer, stiff shots and crappy wine, changes ownership and flirts with gourmet aspirations to the horror of the Homicide crowd, and ends up owned by Korsak, staffed by Angela, and remade ''again'' into a somewhat classier cop bar (with a much improved wine selection in honor of Maura's tipple of choice).



* Several establishments on ''Series/BabylonFive'', most notably Earhart's (reserved for [=EarthForce=] personnel and their guests), the Eclipse Cafe (part of The Zoccalo, the station's marketplace), and the Fresh Air Cafe (a fancy restaurant).

Added DiffLines:

* The Dal Riata, the Fae bar in ''Series/LostGirl''. Explicitly declared to be neutral ground for both Light and Dark Fae, and kept that way by The Ash, an extremely high-ranking Fae who also happens to own the place.

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' has Kirkwall's infamous tavern "The Hanged Man" as the local watering-hole of the main characters, but also caters to pirates, mercenaries, raiders... really depends whoever is in that night.
** Really, the Hanged Man is not so much a Good-Guy Bar or a BadGuyBar as it is [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Accorded Neutral Territory]]; a place where anyone, regardless of legal or moral standing, can go to relax. Guardsmen and criminals alike drink there, and not many fights break out. Well, one or two, but they're started by either outsiders or [[TooDumbToLive idiots]].

* The Leaky Cauldron in the first few ''Literature/HarryPotter'' books: The wizard pub to be in London, which doubles as the main entrance to Diagon Alley. It also was Harry's safe haven when he ran from the Dursleys weeks before his third year at Hogwarts. The Three Broomsticks pub is also this, to a lesser extent, mostly because it contrasts heavily with Hogsmeade's very own shady ''Main/BadGuyBar'', The Hog's Head.[[spoiler:.. That actually ''plays this straight'' in Hogsmeade.
%%** Also
the Leaky Cauldron. later books, being one of the sites for secret Dumbledore's Army meetings at a time when Defense Against the Dark Arts was dumbed down heavily at Hogwarts. It goes ''double'' when it's revealed that the owner is none other than Aberforth Dumbledore, Albus's estranged brother, who shelters and hides the main trio, and is a vital ally in the early stages of the Battle of Hogwarts.]]
