With that being said, a couple of ideas have been floated over the course of our bar planning that I particularly like.
- Lance's - This is an obvious choice. However, what I would like to do is make the logo into two crossed lances and have it be a what I think is a rather cool visual play on words (which may or may not be a oxymoron).
- Juanita's Last Resort - This is a long running name, probably the first name that we came up with way back in college. Outdated, and doesn't really mean anything anymore, I add it to the list just for posterity.
- Far-Going's - Again, I like this is a play on words. It would be a very nice name for branding purposes, and I think would convey a nice positive message which is perfect for a non-profit bar.
- Fargo Public House - The best part about this name is the tradition and history that it conveys. Public Houses were places people could go, get a beer, converse, debate, and were important centers of ideas. Unfortunately, this name isn't so original and there are many (insert city/state name here) Public Houses, and the first successful non-profit bar is the Oregon Public House.
- Sanctuary - Again, not necessarily an original name, (there is a great one in Iowa City, IA) but for a non-profit pub, I think it conveys the proper message and just has a really nice connotation.
- Fellowship Pub - Relatively original name, and again proper messaging and branding.
