The Fountainhead

Best Of
A smoky tavern hidden at the dark end of an FM 1960 strip center, The Fountainhead almost defies description. Here, the bartender will not only ask your name, but introduce himself and - get this - sing the Cheers theme "Where Everybody Knows Your Name" on karaoke night, microphone in one hand while pouring drinks with the other. To a stranger, The Fountainhead might look nondescript, but for regulars it's a place where "family" gets together to drink, good-natured jabs are traded, and the pours are nice and stiff. And strangers here don't stay strangers for long.
