Obligatory bit of [[UsefulNotes/TheFifties 1950s]] PopularHistory. All the kids [[LocalHangout hang out]] here, play {{Pinball}}, and listen to the jukebox play NothingButHits. Carhops are optional. The Malt Shop may also be referred to as a diner, a soda fountain, a drug store or a café but the general look is always basically the same. In a TimeTravel story ending up in TheFifties, often the first place gone into after the MisterSandmanSequence (as in ''Film/BackToTheFuture'', for example).

* The ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' gang visited these quite a bit in parts of the plot that would normally have taken them to a bar. Also, the Scooby gang would often start an episode in a malt shop (in the 196980 series), when they weren't on a beach.

The GreasySpoon is the MaltShop's less romanticized (but equally conventionalized) cousin. Watch out for the teenagers who are SweetheartSipping or the possible eruption of a DinerBrawl. In {{Australia}} and NewZealand, and in Great Britain in TheFifties, these places were traditionally known as 'milk bars'.

to:

* Music/TheEverlyBrothers: "That's Old Fashioned, That's the Way Love Should Be" mentions the protagonist and his girl's fondness for one such place as an example of why their friends think they're a couple of squares. Which means the malt shop was a slice of '50s nostalgia as early as 1963!
