...And it has to be a somewhat famous, renowned bar, that's been open quite awhile and that a fair number of folks have been to.

Finally a worthwhile subject! This place is miles from nowhere:

In a state where almost every bar could meet this criteria, I'd have to think the bars in Key West would win this.

I mean it's a scary adventure to get there... "Remote" also as in quiet, dark skies...

I have to agree, this is a truly an interesting AND important subject.
I'm even thinking it could become a great retirement project.
Having a beer at every bar listed!

I will have to nominate the Corner Bar on the East Fork of the South Fork of the Salmon River.
Its on the corner of Yellow Pine St and 3rd St in Yellow Pine, Idaho (pop 32).


Then "Buckskin Bill's" old place on Five Mile Bar (pop 3) on the Main Salmon River (five miles upstream of the South Fork of the Salmon River) almost qualifies, other than you need either a whitewater raft or a jet boat to get there. They serve a wonderful ice cream float made with Guinness Stout.

I don't know if it's necessarily hard to get to, but there are two bars in rural Boyd County Nebraska that are pretty remote. One is the Nebrask Inn, in Gross, Nebraska which has a population of 3 (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Nebra...70790829639377 is the Facebook page). The other one is the Monowi Tavern in Monowi, the only incorporated town in America with one person. I'm sure most have heard of it since it's been on shows like the one with Larry the Cable Guy on history, and a couple of morning news pieces. However, you can still drive to these places. They are just out in the middle of nowhere

Yeehaw Junction makes historic halfway point on scenic Florida travel road trips - Orlando Sentinel

There is a very isolated crossroads in Florida called Yeehaw Junction. Yes that IS whats its called!! The Desert Inn bar and motel is there, plus that I think there is one gas station and convenience stores, than nothing else for at least 30 miles or so.
