Were you there before the Euro? If so the Franc was not that bad. Always 5 to 6 per $1
The bar was/is called the Lizard King.
They have/had drinks called LTF and Soft Parade (the weakest of all the drinks)
The doors manager made a valid point. The owner of the bar made no request and even if he did the answer is no. What if you went in to get a drink and you did not like your LFM cocktail. You could then blame the DOORS. Maybe call up Ray, Robbie or John and ask for your $10 back. lol
I always wondered why Jim opened a Dress shop and not a BAR.
Yes, I was there when it was the Franc. It was about $4-5 US dollars for a coca cola. One 35 mm Kodak film was $11! It was a choice between film for the camera or food. I had to pick food. No digital cameras back then!
And I remember reading about the bar and that The Doors orginazation was not happy with it. I never went to it. We stuck to little local places, nothing fancy.
