60 Pub & Bar Names

Updated on February 5, 2017

How willing are you to go to a bar that has a boring name? Probably not as likely as a bar that has a catchy name!

If you have a liquor license, savings, and a desire to be a business owner, then it’s probably a good idea to spend a decent chunk of time thinking of the perfect name for that impending investment, right? Right.

Great Business Naming Tips for You to Sip On

Bar Name Ideas to Consider

Finding the perfect name won’t happen right away, but your best bet is to start keeping a pen and notepad on you at all times, in case a great idea strikes you. Start jotting down all good names that come to mind. Here’s a few tips for coming up with bar names:

  • Use your name: Surely, you’re going to be a proud business owner, right? So why not use your name in the bar’s name? Everyone should know who’s boss!

  • Use alcohol: Obviously, you’ll be serving alcohol at your bar, so it’s not a bad idea to use the name of alcohol in your bar name. Some cities might have restrictions on such, so be sure to check. Otherwise, using alcohol in your name will let everyone know what kind of business you’re running!

  • Use puns: Puns are catchy, clever, and fun! Anything that helps customers to remember your name is a good move when it comes to naming any business, especially a bar.

  • Use location: Using the street, city, or even general location such as at a beach can help people to know generally where you are located just at the sound of your name. I hear “cha-ching!”

  • Use humor: A bar is one of the few kinds of businesses that aren’t held to professional standards when it comes to a name. The funny thing is, the more they drink, the funnier the name becomes! I can just see the Facebook status updates now…

With these tips in mind, you should have quite a few ideas brewing in your mind already. Great! Remember that pen and notepad I told you to keep with you, use it! Here’s a few more names to spark some ideas for your bar name:
