Thanks for the quick response!

No wonder I don't remember it, as it has been at least three years since we visited the park.

A bar near El Toro? Sounds like I've died and gone to heaven! :lover:

We're a borough of NYC people actually do things here besides go to an amusement park.

Liberty Pub (Ice-cold beer & wine) is I think the first bar, That's where I've got beer before when I've gone for Gay Day.

I think the Macho Nacho just serves mixed drinks or even just margarita's if I remember correctly?

^ Liberty Pub is just a stand that serves beer. Macho Nacho is the first proper bar. And if I remember correctly, it does have beer on tap. Photo courtesy of Great Adventure History.

I can confirm Macho Nacho has taps as well as mixed drinks like margaritas, daiquiris, etc. Food is decent to good, too. Excellent addition, unless its really crowded. Then it can be a drag.

Liberty Pub is my spot. Nice little shaded seating away from the hubbub, nary a wait to be served, and they have 4-5 taps of decent selections and wine as well. And pretzels & turkey legs too (of course).

Yeah I like Liberty Pub! There is outdoor seating so that's why I just thought it was a "bar". I wish it was like Canada where you could buy shots at a stand in the middle of the park!

^ Eh, even with the fountain/main street/Skyscreamer/etc currently right there Liberty Pub still usually goes unnoticed by most. I still think even with the Joker there Liberty will remain a quiet little solace for us that don't like waiting more that 2-3 minutes for a beer to enjoy in the shade. Not worried in the slightest.
