I can't speak to the bar name but Ben Franklin wrote a drinker's dictionary for the condition of those who spend too much time there. http://www.libationlab.com/the-drinkers-dictionary-by-benjamin-franklin/.

Here are the A's.

He is Addled,
He’s casting up his Accounts,
He’s Afflicted,
He’s in his Airs.
