* The WildWest chapter of ''VideoGame/LiveALive" has one, of course. His main purpose in the game is to waste time: you get 8 minutes to set traps to hold off the Crazy Bunch gang, and if you're done early you can have a drink to pass the time faster. While has has a story to tell, he keeps getting sidetracked telling it and it goes absolutely nowhere.

* ''[[Literature/TheShipWho The Ship Who Searched]]'' by MercedesLackey has a scene where the male lead pours out his woes to a bartender and receives some good advice -- along with a LampshadeHanging, as it's revealed that a lot of bartenders in this future setting have received formal training in psychological and relationship counseling because of how often they're in scenes like this.

* ''Series/LifeOnMars2006'': Nelson is an oracle nonpareil who may just be the protagonist's subconscious. He's also a {{Fauxreigner}} in that he plays up a Jamaican accent so people don't take him too seriously ("Folks just seem happier with the other Nelson"). He turns up again in the very last episode of ''AshesToAshes'', which reveals (MAJOR spoilers): [[spoiler: that he's more or less the British coppers' equivalent of ''St Peter.'']]

** In [[WretchedHive Omega]], a Batarian bartender tries to poison Shepard, but since this is [[{{Badass}} Shepard]], he fails. Shepard can then either force the bartender to drink his own poison, get a paranoid turian to shoot him or tell him to scram. He's promptly replaced by a salarian.

*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': At ''Full Mug'' you will find Rab who is both the owner and operator. He'll listen to whatever problem you're having while brewing up some of his [[{{whatevermancy}} taverncraft]] and give advice as necessary. You don't even need to be in his tavern for the first one; if he sees you on the street it's the same deal. In ''Literature/ManaMutationMenace'', he listened to Eric's girl trouble (failed attempt at a RelationshipUpgrade), Culmus' girl trouble (complicated UptownGirl situation) and Basilard's girl trouble (his clan is rejecting his adopted daughter and she is rejecting them as well, including Basilard himself) but only had sage advice for the latter.



* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': Guinan, source of the above quote.

* "Mac", who runs [=MacAnally's=] in ''TheDresdenFiles''. [=MacAnally's=] is one of few places which is neutral ground for supernaturals, so every non-"vanilla human" in Chicago will drop by sooner or later. He doesn't talk much, though.
