Alcohol is the most popular mind-altering substance sold in the world. Bars and pubs are places where people go to meet and share alcoholic beverages, like beer, wine, and cocktails (mixed drinks).

A "stumble home bar" is a term used for a bar that builds a reputation for pouring heavy shots (larger than legal 1.5 oz pour) or for simply over-serving patrons. Legally, a bartender cannot serve someone who "appears to be intoxicated". It is up to the bartender's discretion. The idea behind the term "stumble home bar" is that the entire bar staff has a different standard on which they operate their discretion. Patrons who wish to drink past their level of intoxication often leave "stumbling home" at the end of the night.
