Moe's Tavern

In the animated series The Simpsons, Moe Szyslak (voiced by Hank Azaria) is the proprietor of Moe's Tavern, the regular drinking hole of Homer Simpson, Barney Gumble, Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo, and others. His name might really be "Momar".

On one side of Moe's Tavern is King Toot's Music Store. On the other side is an alley. Across the street was a factory formerly owned by Bart Simpson, until it collapsed. The inside of the bar has a few pool tables and a dartboard. It is very dank and "smells like tinkle". A small stage stands at one end; Aerosmith, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the B-Sharps have all performed there. Because female customers are so rare, Moe frequently uses the women's restroom as an office. A jar of pickled eggs perpetually stands on the bar. Moe's was briefly converted into a family restaurant called Uncle Moe's Family Feedbag.

Moe is perpetually single. In one episode, he has a panda-smuggling ring on the side; in another, a killer-whale smuggling ring. His claim to fame was the "Flaming Moe", a lit specialty drink whose secret ingredient is Krusty the Klown brand cough syrup. It stood to make him a fortune until Homer, the true originator of the drink, exposed the secret ingredient allowing several competitor knockoff drinks to spawn.

Moe is frequently the victim of prank telephone calls from Bart Simpson. Bart's calls to Moe have asked for:

  • Al Coholic
  • Oliver Clothesoff
  • Jacques Strap
  • Seymour Butts
  • Homer Sexual
  • Mike Rotch
  • Bea O'Problem
  • Amanda Huggenkiss
  • Hugh Jass
  • Ivana Tinkle
  • Heywood U. Cuddleme
  • I'm a stupid moron, with an ugly face, and a big butt, and my butt stinks, and I like to kiss my own butt.

Homer once called and asked for "Eura Snotball" but the gag backfired.


Single, an alcoholic (after being introduced to beer by Homer Simpson as a teenager), and living in a incredibly messy dump, Barney arguably remains Homer's best friend. His desperation for alcohol has been the source of many jokes. He remains friendly and good natured despite his unfortunate condition.

In Season ??, Barney finally kicked the alcoholism and transferred his addiction to espresso, which led to the disappearance of his trademark belch. Barney has demonstrated considerable talents as a singer, filmmaker, astronaut, and snow plow driver, but keeps getting foiled by his various addictions.

Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo has the worst name Moe ever heard, and is a friend to Barney and a patron of Moe's Tavern. Homer once used his name.

Lenny, Carl, and occasionally Charlie, Homer's colleagues at the nuclear plant, also frequent Moe's.
