Can you recall some of the area's older bars?
What are some of the old bars that used to be in Sandusky during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s? I have an elder neighbor that was trying to remember one on First Street that may have been an old gas station located before it was the former East Side Cafe. Also, if anyone could list any places and locations during this time period, that would be awesome. John in Castalia
We posted this question on our Facebook page and received the following responses:
Robin Dwight Pratt Cochran's on the south west corner of First and Ontario. Built a house there in the 1980s. They had frosted fish bowls for beer and lemonade, great fried mushrooms, perch and burgers. They also had pool tables and a super player piano in the front bay window.
Feel free to comment below on where you liked to visit or maybe some other spots nobody mentoined.
