Not many in my neighborhood, but I am about 5 blocks from 2 bars.

The only place I've been to that didn't sell food was double Nickel Brewing Co. in Pennsauken NJ. They offered a variety of snacks and had menus for the restaurants which would deliver.
This has been my experience as well here in NE Texas.

Many restaurants have separate bar areas and you can order at the bar from the full menu. There are some bars that are simply bars but as far as I know (having been to some but of course not all of them) but all of them I'm familiar with have at least a wide assortment of appetizer/snack style options. I've never seen "just peanuts" at a bar locally.

We have plenty of bar options, but our small city is not big on "walkability" outside the downtown square area. There are some lofts and apartments and even houses in that area, and they would say that they have
bars within walking distance, but even those bars have extensive parking available, for patrons such as me who are driving in from suburbs or neighborhoods outside the downtown area.

And of course, Uber and Lyft and other taxi services.

Basically our economy locally is "car centric" or rather "truck centric!" It's spread out quite a bit and there just isn't much of a "pub scene." People who live here seem to love it and the local economy is booming and super healthy, but it's not a pub sort of small city, though there are some really nice bars in this town. Check out the one below, for example:

Interesting poll. I guess "City" data does live up to its name. I live 3 short blocks from a small commercial strip of bars, restaurants, ice cream shop, a library, a bank, movie theater, among other things. Wouldn't have it any other way.

Several bars in walking distance. But of course no one is walking here...

LOL. While I consider your query off-topic and uninteresting, I donít find it a personal attack on me or otherwise offensive. Thatís my trigger for reporting a post.

In fact, Iíve gotten pretty bored with the whole thread topic. This affords you one of your favorite opportunities: having the final word.
