Isn't that the feature that actually gave the name "bar" to bars in the 1st place? As in "standing at the bar"?

My favourite Pub out of all the ones I've been in was McSawleys in Toronto. It had a sign over the exit saying "Customers are requested to please wipe their feet on the way out." The deck inside was in a mess because they used to throw all the free peanut shells on the foor to keep the bar and tables clear.

Both in Liverpool, The Swan in Wood St about 12 years ago followed by the Ye Olde Crack Rice St about 10 years ago. Both bare boards with a couple of handfulls of sawdust thrown down at lunchtime.
