Can anyone tell me of any cocktail bars in America that are chains? I am not looking for one off bars (no matter how great they are) I am lookjing for a company with a chain of 10s or better still 100s of cocktail bars especially if they are kind of party atmosphere bars rather than upscale cocktail bars ....... hope someone can help

Well, if you count places like the bars at the Cheesecake Factory and the like, then there are at least a few. Bubba Gump, Hooter's, etc. etc.

They're not cocktail bars, but they are restaurants with bars that serve cocktails.

The only places with 100s of locations are going to be Applebee's, Red Lobster, etc; chain restaurants with bars that will serve you green appletinis.

Coyote Ugly is the only bar chain (and not restaurant chain that includes a bar) I can think of, with 21 according to the wiki.
