Scooter’s 734th bar, first visited in 2010.
Talk about a lost bar… I thought I’d covered every bar on North Oak four years ago! Every time I saw the name “Lost Bar” come up in my research I assumed it had to be a new name for a bar I’d already been too.
Ironically, my BARDAR has gone off numerous times while driving past the very strip mall in which this bar is located. It’s a strip mall that screams that it has a bar in it, yet there isn’t one to be found…
…unless you look in the back.
But why would you? From Oak it looks like a standard one-story strip mall with nothing behind it. But it turns out there’s a sharp drop in the hill and there is indeed a lower level around back.
Lost Bar is a small, dark, smokey dive — exactly what you’d expect such a well-hidden place to be. There’s pool tables, games, and a small stage. There seems to be a well-knit group of regulars.
