If you want a legitimate beer joint, as in a seedy dive full of fringe characters, go to Shar's on the West Side. It's the real deal. It's on Central Avenue.

I highly recommend it.

Not only do you not know how a womans body functions as evident with one of your posts (know it is not urine) you know nothing about beer joints. Are you sure you are a man?

I have at least 7 to 10 beers nightly after work five nights a week and sometimes more, and on the weekends I have no clue how many I consume, but I guarantee it's a lot. I like to unwind after work with a few beers shoot some pool and jaw with the fellas. It is what I enjoy doing! I live walking distance to the bar so there is no drinking and driving. And the bar is the Cantina.

Shar's is a seedy dump. I wouldn't go anywhere on the West side...except maybe the smokehouse or Barney's, and those ain't great either. Mama rosa's is ok for dinner and beers with friends or family, but there's no bar.

To the OP, tell us what area you are in and we'll see if we can help. Charleston was always lacking in good neighborhood bars. The west side has a bunch, but I never cared much for getting stabbed in the face. There used to be a couple good bars around the mound in so chas. I also used to go to Griff's from time to time...also in so chas.

34 and I was there many times when I was younger. The Cantina is one of the dirtiest bars around. How old is their carpet? It's gotta be at least 30 years old. It was probably a nice bar 30 years ago. How many shootings has that place had?
Ahhhahaha

You need to find yourself a nice fern bar. Go down to the East End and have yourself an appletini.

The Gold Dome in Kanawha City Rocks. The beer is cold the chicks are easy and you can find just about any kind of drug your heart desires. Why go anywhere else.

The Elk River Bar & Grill on Rt. 119 - closer to Mink Shoals (near Knollwood) is a good place to stop and have a beer - the bar overlooks the Elk River - you can sit outside on the deck where they allow you to smoke. Plus, they just opened the "grill" part of the bar and heard the food was OK. Lots of bikers, people all different ages, but no trouble allowed here at all.

There are no insects and no trouble all that is just a myth, the only thing that'll be crawling on you is some hot ass chick wanting some fine loving.

Real men drink beer. It is no big surprise that you do not know any. I am sure you and all of your queer buddies sit around eating salads (or tossing them) and drinking Zima.

Go to the Blue Parrot on Capital Street. Drink prices are the lowest on the block and Connie is the best bartender. She pours the largest shots also. If you're feeling brave ask for a 'Connie Shot' tastes really good but will put a hurting on ya quick!

Most everyone is a regular and no trouble except for the occasional angry drunk who is quick to be removed if causes any problems.
