Standard bar located in Washington or California. Just happens to have some of the 400+ hours of released Nixon Whitehouse tapes playing in the background. Tapes play when band is taking a break or the recorded music is changing.

A couple of booths have headsets for those really interested. Tapes in the booths play continuously. Maybe a jute box let's you select "hits".

Some of the tapes are captioned, so some video monitor playing the "yeah, yeah , Right, Good of you to call thanks" will be required.

Bar decor from Dick and Pat, and whatever accumulates.

Search WhiteHouseTapes.org for more info on what is available.

/ Between 1940 and 1973, six American presidents from both political parties secretly recorded just under 5,000 hours of conversations. /

       For a small fee, drunk patrons could try to duplicate Rose Mary Woods' 18-minute gap at a small desk in the corner.

       There's a restaurant in Edinburgh where What's He Building? by Tom Waits is on a constant loop in the toilets. I can only imagine the NTB would be even more unsettling. Croissant!
