    Re: Anyone remember these Fort Dodge Drinking Establishments

    I remember going to a bar in Ft. Dodge called Tremors. It was attached to a strip club. This was in about 1992. You could get in the bar being only 19 and then you cold go next door to the nudie bar. Good stuff. Last time I was in dodge there was not even a building where it was. It was along the main street. I think it's Highway 20.

    Re: Anyone remember these Fort Dodge Drinking Establishments

    What about the Hayloft? I lived in Fort Dodge for a couple of years in the mid-90s and was single. I took home many different girls from this fine establishment that I wouldn't exactly want to take home to meet Mom & Dad.

    Would have made the list, but I could not remember the name of the place

    I wouldn't call TopHat a drinking establishment.

    Well I drank a lot there, plus they had entertainment. In the early 70's I would describe it as a high class strip club. New ownership changed that however.

    Top Hat is a drinking establishment with a clothing problem.

    Come boys, a real Fort Dodge drinker would have put down Ethals or The Stag (one in the same place)!

    Re: Anyone remember these Fort Dodge Drinking Establishments

    Top Hat has always been two letters short in my experience. sTop tHat seems much more appropriate.

    A few of these places still exist. Roman Inn and Amigos seem like they would be right at home on this list based on the few that I'm familiar with.
