Floyds in Oblong

The Floyd's Place in Oblong, IL is just a little dive bar. It doesn't really look anything like this place, although there are some shops in town that have that same sort of style.

I found one in Seattle, in Amarillo, in Oblong (Ill.) and in Tennessee. Wish I could find the one in Ohio - I'm sure it's no longer there, but would like to know where it was. It looks familiar.
