Is it strange to go to a bar by yourself?

So I recently moved, and don't really know the area, or many people here. There is this local bar, that has live music late nights on Friday and Saturday nights. Would it be weird if I went by myself and just grabbed a beer? Or would I look weird being there by myself?

Hi there TheHawkBat! I do not find it strange to go to a bar all by myself. There have been times I have done this. Perhaps one of the reasons why such is fine with me is that I am sure that I do have a friend or two whom I will see there. Or, even if I don't, in most of the bars here in our city, the owners or in some cases, the attendants are my friends too. So, I do not really have to worry about being there all by myself.

I think their is nothing wrong being alone in a bar as long that you don't drink to nuch, a few bottles may do, while just listening to music, and just enjoy for a while I think. Good night!

I don't think so, no. Especially seeing as there is live music there too and I am sure that there would be others by themselves as well just for the music. I travel alone a lot of the time and have sat in a bar by myself many times! The only way to get to know your new area and the people in it is to get on out there! I say go for it.....
