While there are many bars that are motorcycle friendly or motorcycle themed, few actually set themselves apart from the competition. The makings of a “famous” biker bar include great food, a fun atmosphere, cold drinks and finally an experience that will not be forgotten. Here are our top picks for where to grab some grub.
1. Godspeed – Oakland, California
It is nearly impossible to find a venue for motorcyclists as unique as Godspeed. The all- in- one establishment is nothing short of a true Mecca for bikers. Take your pick of the fresh sandwiches and ice cold drinks at the Godspeed Café or shop around the gear shop for the latest in motowear. All this time, you can have a free safety inspection completed or speak with one of the manufacturer specific technicians about issues or modifications for your bike. To complete the experience at Godspeed, you can also get inked by one of the highly talented tattoo artists at the on- site tattoo parlor.
2. Hideaway Grill – Cave Creek, Arizona
In 1998 Mark Bradshaw brought his dream into reality by creating Hideaway Grill on the outskirts of a big city. Bikers can head here to tread where some of the legends have been. A popular stop for famous motorcycle personalities and custom bike builders, Hideaway Grill offers bikers a place in the country to relax and enjoy good food and hospitality. With a motto like “There are no strangers here, just friends you haven’t met yet” how can you not want to make this a must- visit bar?
