The Halfway Inn. And the Flag and Thistle ("fat" for short).

My Half-Orc was the bouncer there. He made it to third level in that campaign with barely lifting his great axe. I resurected him for a new campaign and BS let the Silvers Rest Rise again...


My Group always had at least 1 Lazy Griffon Inn in every campaign for close to 25 years now..

Beardless Dwarf Tavern (From Living Greyhawk - A Tavern in a Half-Orc town named Haven.

Here are some others I used
The Unempty Mug
Baalzepub
The Drunken Monk
The Dragon's Breath
Black Dragon Inn (Insert Color of Choice)
Half-way Inn
The Happy Hooker
Joe's
Lonely Haystack
The Last Resort
The Pleasure Palace
The Yellow Elf

Mine vary between sadly unoriginal and oddly amusing.

The Happy Drunkard
The Sad Drunkard (original, eh?)
The Frisky Fox
Festering Lester's (an undead owner)
The Crazy Old Bandicoot
Blue Balls Brewery (named after a drink)
The Bandiroo (similar to the jack rabbit, a bandiroo is a cross between a bandicoot and a kangaroo. Confusing PCs is fun)
The Rusted Anvil
A Small Victory
Ale of the Albatross (one of the specialty drinks contained albatross)
Last Star Inn

Those are all I can remember right now.

Some of these are very funny.

The Ox and Arrow Inn

I had a tavern once in a large city that was a front for a local assasin syndicate called The Last Call. Ended up being a great recurring location.

Not a place to start a brawl in, though.

My latest tavern is the Charred Gander - named after an incident with the first cook.

A group-generated name that was memorable is the Salty Swine - in a fishing town, no less.

A new player in one of my groups got to name the inn where his paladin was staying, and he chose the Feather Bed - in a land where proctitution was legal...

That one still comes up, a year or more later.

It seems the best tavern names usually have double meanings.

My first DM called all of his bars the "Plot Device Tavern" In deference to my first game I name all of my pubs the "Plot Device Bar and Grill" and "P&D Diner"

One time I had a DEMHOP... Deus ex machina house of pancakes

Although I HAVE considered "Ensign Ricky's" which is of course a shout out to all my disposable NPC's who are in fact shout outs to the disposable red shirts of Star Trek
