Chain of movie & sitcom inspired bars

A chain of pubs, simulating bars featured in movies and sitcoms

While themed bars are in existence, I don't believe anyone has gone the whole hog in creating bars exactly as seen in movies etc.

To enhance the experience, unknown actors could be employed to re-enact scenes which took place in those bars. The original actors couldn't be used, because then it wouldn't be fakery.

I'd guess a 'stunt' DelBoy would need extra cash to fall through the hatch 5 times a night, and bar fight scenes are probably best avoided.

       [marked-for-deletion] pun
hippo, Jul 12 2010
  

       It's not a pun, it's a Spoonerism.   

       While it is true that the idea arose from the Spoonerism, the spoonerism should not form grounds for deletion of an otherwise valid idea.   

       So there!
Twizz, Jul 12 2010
  

       I can see this being a massively successful idea if done properly. first of course you would appeal to fans of that movie/tv show but then also just the casual bar crowd looking for something new. throw in a couple of props taken directly from the set and you have the makings of something pretty cool, thought how many "unique" ones can you think of? i personally can't think of that many which would be immediately recognisable. sound starting point for an idea though

       I can't stop reading this title as Barf Achery,
thought you should know.
  

       "[hippo]! That there deputy's badge looks strange on you! Why aren't you home by the fire?"   

       "Well, it's like this; Sheriff [Quest] has been losing it. It's the long hours. It's the lack of recognition. It's the case of ... the Kiss of Death. He's obsessed. He doesn't even have time to issue parking tickets any more. He's out there somewhere, scraping up diesel particulates, Florida beach sand, teenagers' pores... anything at all that's dot-like and black. Lord knows what he plans to do with it all."   

       "Well, anyway, there's work to do here; are you coming quietly, [Twizz], or do we have to cuff ya?"
pertinax, Jul 12 2010
  

       Yes?

       [marked-for-deletion] pun.   

       I know it's hard to resist playing "make up a name, then come up with a description for it and see if you can defend it against the humorless moderators" here, but please don't fill the halfbakery website with those attempts.
jutta, Jul 13 2010
  

       A meter or gauge would help indicate whether the halfbakery website is nearly full yet.
Ian Tindale, Jul 13 2010
  

       <<Crestfallen>>   

       Sorry Jutta - I promise this is the last one.   

       (Slopes off to a corner)
Twizz, Jul 13 2010
  

       Since this idea is now marked for deletion by the bakesperson, perhaps 21 Quest can try to get the last comment here?
Loris, Jul 14 2010
  

       You can always take the idea that the pun gave you, and then change the name to hide the true nature of the invention process. This makes such ideas immune to the humorlessness of the mods.
daseva, Jul 14 2010
  

       "The Humorlessness of the Long Distance Moderator".   

       Oops.

       New! Improved! Now with subtracted humor.

smendler, Jun 22 2013
  

       Well, having missed this idea before, I'm now trying to reverse-engineer it to see what the original punnishable title was.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jun 23 2013
  

       Way back when machine not didn't archive that day, how remiss. Maybe get onto NSA/GCHQ?
not_morrison_rm, Jun 23 2013
  

       That speakeasy bar/gambling den that transforms into a temperance meeting in "Guys and Dollls".   

       Once your transforming be a different bar every day of the week.
popbottle, Jun 27 2013
  

       The title changed.   

       Given Twizz and 2-fries' early comments ("It's not a pun, it's a Spoonerism."; "I can't stop reading this title as Barf Achery"), it must have been Balf Hakery, or something like that.
