There's one about a mile away. But we live in a largish suburb. Now that our last child graduated and our house is on the market, we can't wait to move back downtown where we first started.

If you don't mind a 3/4 mile walk uphill on the way home, yes.

Kind of, not a pleasant walk though. I lived near hundreds in New Orleans last year.

Iím about three blocks from the closest bar. There are dozens within an eight-block radius, though.

Many, many of every description. There are divey ones and very elegant ones, jazz bars, places with good food, craft cocktail spots, beer-centric places, sports bars, game bars, pubs, izakaya joints, date spots, etc. That said, my block is quiet and residential and close to a large city park.

I live centrally located to 4-5 major districts and corridors--Pacific Heights, Marina/Cow Hollow, Russian Hill, Polk Gulch, Japantown, Hayes Valley and The Fillmore are all just a short walk away. Most are regular evening stops on the walk home from work.

Three within a block. Two are technically in small restaurants, but they are popular as bars in and of themselves and have their own regulars/scene irrespective of the dining.

I do! The best part is that it has a second-floor patio with a panoramic view of the ocean.

It's a seven-mile walk up and downhill in the blinding snow... about four miles along there's a Chilis where I can get a bad beer while I rest -- but not for long. I stagger onward, chased by coyotes until finally crossing the river on ice floes. I can see the lights of the town in the distance. Finally, I reach real pavement and pick up the pace. At long last, I'm there but they closed at 9 PM and it's 9:45. I turn around and trudge back home. Walking to the fridge is closer.

At our place in Jax, yes. Within 10 min walking there are about 6 actual bars I believe. And then over a dozen restaurants, music venues and coffee shops that serve alcohol.

At our place in Miami, yes sorta. It's an extremely suburban setting but also extremely dense. So from my home inside a gated community I can walk to a retail plaza in about 12 minutes. I can reach two other plazas in 15-20 minutes. Probably about 6 bars and clubs between them, and over a dozen places to have a drink. It's not a very inviting walk, but actually there's always a decent number of people on the sidewalks.

It doesn't really matter to me to just have a bar where I can hang out. What I do care about is having places that would attract my friends from other parts of town to come hang out. I'd say we had that in Jax. Not so in Miami.
