Now that the general look and feel of the Bar has been set, the question is on how to call that Bar. Every Bar needs to have a name after all people will associate the name with my place and the name will be dropped in conversations. Like:
Let’s go to [enter bar name here]
So picking the right name is essential to the success of it, so here’s my list of names so far:
This one is simply Soap Bar translated into Basel German. Would fit my ongoing theme of doing everything Soap-like
kind of a stupid one actually. Instead of Han Solo it would be Bar Solo, obviously.
Same thing here, sticking to the Star Wars theme, this time with a variation of R2D2
These two are an attempt of going down a personal road with my Cat’s name, but having the place called by a cat that passed away kinda seems wrong, I don’t know.
Zum lange Inseli, Zur lange Insle
These two are actually among my favorites and currently, the ones I consider choosing, not sure which one since I like both. It’s my favorite Drink translated, again, into Basel German.
a rather simple one, Basel Germans translation of To The Bar. In some way it’s clever but it also is used to describe a shitty place, so I don’t like the negativity attached to that word.
Very simple with no real connection to a drinking place but to a mythical creature that is used on a lot of local images like on our fountains and flags.
So at this moment, the one I’d pick is either Zum lange Inseli/Zur lange Insle or Saiffistugg. Or an even better name comes along, who knows. I still have some time until the bar actually opens but things are in motion and hopefully within two to three weeks the main part is done.
