Anyone read any of Spider Robinson's "Callahan's Crosstime Saloon" stories?

If you have, and you're an avid SF reader who doesn't restrict themselves to a few authors, you'll have encountered tons of SF stories where all or at least the principal part takes place in a bar, pub, saloon or other establishment where "adult beverages" are served.

Soooo, seeing as there's a subgenre I've decided to call "BarSF", how many such stories can we list?

I'll start off with "All you zombies" by R. A. Heinlein.

Well, there're Arthur C. Clarke's "White Hart" stories - science-fiction tall tales told in a London pub. They're collected in a book called <i>Tales from the "White Hart,"</i> - which has no doubt been out of print for decades (I found my copy at a used-book store).
