Tony's Old Time Tavern
A review from Barfly Magazine:
There's actually plenty of reasons to frequent Tony's - for even those not 86'd by every surrounding establishment - though, y'know, every bar has its niche. Their cigarette machine beats mini mart prices, six-packs are sold up til 2:29:59, the pool table's generally vacant, they have a real juke box (that's really good!), they open at 7 AM, and regulars have been long inured to glammier tourists. Cleaner than you'd expect (excepting the regulars), the shotgun tavern wouldn't even be considered all that divey a few miles east though a lingering reputation ensures, post-Beavers games, it's the only staggerable option with guaranteed seating.
I think that hits the 16 ounce can of Hamm's on the head. Plus, there's a creepy rabbit statue behind the bar (see above). Tony's can be found near the corner of 19th and West Burnside.
