The Longhorn Bar


After a long day riding the range, tending to the horses, one needs a place to relax and have a drink or two. Some locals find the Longhorn Bar the place to go. Actually, business folks, lawyers, doctors, teachers, secretaries and even a few retired people have been seen in these environs! You might even see a preacher or two, but they'll be in a booth in the back.

Extremely nice photo, thanks for sharing it. I just love the colors, but all the shapes give a textured feel (if that's the right word) to it.

I like the idea of the preacher's booth...

What a warm and cozy place, but where is everbody. Did you scare them away with your camera?
Nice shot.

An answer to a question you posed awhile back. Yes my eldest is a real cowgirl. She does the branding of the calves and even assists the vet when he has to be there. As I said all the cow work is done on horseback. And she is a skinny thing too. MB

Love this bar - warm and welcoming. You always take such good pictures.

Paula said...

Looks like I'm seeing a movie.

Cezar and Léia said...

This place looks cosy and as you said after all it would be a great idea stopping by and have some relaxed conversation with friends.
I also loved that stone wall at the right with that light. It's modern!

I'm thinking you might even see a photographer in there sometimes. Just a guess, though.

brattcat said...

love those light fixtures.

Lois said...

Looks like a nice place to unwind Jacob. My priest would not be in a booth in the back, but right up there at the bar!

B SQUARED said...

A very good looking "watering hole."

Frank said...

What a fun place. Makes you want to sit, relax and enjoy friends. Great western decor. Looks like they have a good selection of rot gut of every description.

Asta said...

Hi Jacob,

What a nice place...... Would like to sit there and chat. It looks very cosy and very relaxed.

Best regards
Asta

Jacob said...

@ Bergson - No, I think it's V45, which is a brand showing to whom the horse belongs...

Thanks!

Halcyon said...

Looks like a nice place. Are the owners Texas fans?

Jacob said...

@ VP - Is that so you could avoid them? ;-)

Jacob said...

@ Lee - No smoking, Lee. Not even in Paris anymore!

Small City Scenes said...

The girl you see in all the riding pics is my grand-daughter and yes she is a cutie. she is also a real cowgirl--having chased cowes and rounding up the calves on the Ritzville Ranch. MB

dan J. said...

This is my kind of place Jacob.

A glass of good bourbon..... the longhorn theme....... the bar style lights...... the only thing that may be finer might be an Irish pub...... but this...... I could spend some serious time here.

Love it.

Eamon said...

and maybe even Jacob and Lois occasionally I guess?

Buenos Aires Photoblog said...

But where are all the folks??? Did you tell them to hide or have you been the last to leave this cozy place? Never forget to turn off the lights then. (;

bfarr said...

LOL. Looks like a nice place.

Jarart said...

This looks like a great place and I love the name too. I wouldn't think of Florida hearing that name though;)

Katie said...

So the preachers don't want to be seen...

Jacob said...

@ Katie - Not if they're Southern Baptists! :-)
