Children have no place in a bar, and most youths prefer dancing in nightclubs to loud music and cheap booze... but for those who wish a calmer and more mature place, there is the bar.
Even among bars, there is a variety of styles: from seedy dockside dives, to beer halls where there is always a ball game or race being played on a large screen, to the dimly-lit classier cocktail bars...

What, then, is a bar? A place where they serve drinks, sure, but that's just an element of the whole.
A bar is a social environment safe from the rest of the world where one goes read more

Before I get to the bulk of the review,

.....Imagine the thought of going to a bar for the very first time. Even after going through the trouble of eventually arriving at one, you stand outside the bar idly, wondering whether you should go in or not. Afraid that you’ll be made fun of, afraid you’ll embarrass yourself, you become anxious and the door handle feels heavy, as if it’s shutting you out. But mustering up the courage, you cautiously open the door and take a peek inside. Dim lights, gentle murmurs of people talking, occasional clangs of glasses, classy jazz playing in the background; all read more

Both are calm and slow-paced series where the main character helps to solve the problems of the people he meets.
Wonderfully, these two anime capture your attention from the start. The protagonists of the series dually act as minor and major roles in the "episodic" storyline. The two protagonists from Bartender and Trapeze tend to deal with peoples social troubles and help them solve them through strangely fitting and often intriguing ways. The anime Bartender is more serious, while Trapeze cracks jokes to enhance the psychedelic mood. If you're contemplating on watching these and are led astray by the art or concept, give either a try! If you enjoyed or are enjoying either, check the other one out - you won't be disappointed.
