Please name them. I'd like to find a nice place to grab a drink and maybe socialize without worrying about undesirables.

If your one of those letters then you would probably have fun at that bar. If not then give the par, dew drop, or Dixie's a try. I stick with the par because it's easy goin atmosphere and kinda quiet

A bar without "undesirables?" In Parkersburg? I guess you could open one. And it might fulfil your requirements - until about three hours after you first start serving alcohol.

There isn't a bar in this town where you'll never encounter underage girls, whores, people trying to sell you pills & coke, or just plain annoying clumsy noisy drunks. Well, maybe Chick's Lounge if it's still open. It used to just be (sparsely) populated with quiet middle-aged laborers who wanted to take a break from their sad lives between leaving work and going home, and the conversation level rarely got above a mumble.

Some folks like the Hill House. But since the bartender at the time - an ex-stripper from the 77 Strip in Mineral Wells who insisted on telling my girlfriend that she was pretty enough to be one, that there were no locks on the women's bathroom at the Strip, and that she was the reason because the manager got tired of her locking herself in there and smoking cr*ck - ran out and pecked on my window about three seconds after closing time the last time I went because she saw me leaning over my girlfriend's lap (she got her charm bracelet caught in the seat belt latch and didn't want to break it because it had been her grandmother's, lol). I rolled my window down and was about to explain what was going on when she literally stuck her head through the opening and said, "I saw you leaning down. Are you snorting something? Is it coke? I don't care what it is, can I have some?"

I haven't been back since. The whole experience was annoying, embarrassing, and mildly disgusting. On the bright side, that was the last time my girlfriend asked me if we could stop somewhere for a drink or two after she had to work late so that she wouldn't be up the rest of the night trying to unwind.
