I think there a lot of ways to define a place as a pub:
- Daytime drinkers and 'locals' (guys that literally spend whole days in there drinking beer)
- Bar stools & 'barflies' (people who always sit around the bar - usually guys who come in on their own and sit and read the paper and maybe make conversation with he barmaid).
- Teams I.e. Darts, Pool etc.
It's also a bit about the look of the place. Lots of wood and cotton cusioned chairs and big bulky bars. Lots of pubs have odd things collected and displayed - mini spirit bottles, novelty shot glass or mugs, awards and cups from their teams wins etc.
I've worked in several proper pubs, and I absolutely love them and do miss them in the city. It's just not the same.
Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.
'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
