|The above is merely used for illustration. I have no direct evidence that this bar, or those pictured in it, are, in fact, even remotely hip (posers!).|
Asked by my daughter about hipster bars I spelled out some key concepts:
- A hipster bar can't have too many hipsters otherwise it isn't "authentic."
- Old-timey crap on the walls can draw a hipster in like a moth to a flame, but usually because the hipsters are taking ironic enjoyment in the stuff.
- A bona fide "authentic" beer like PBR needs to be on site amidst the micro brews
- The place can't be lame
