Which state bars will have their logos removed?
7 layers bars are a common motif in American and international bar decor and in popular culture, but which states will be forced to take a knee?
A new survey from the National Association of Bar and Restaurant Owners found that eight of the 10 states where bars are banned (including New York) are in the Northeast and Midwest.
New Jersey is not among the 10.
It is not even among the states where bar owners have had to ban the use of their logos, which means that the logos will remain.
New York, New Jersey, Vermont, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and New York City will all continue to use their bar logos, and even the bars in the Washington D.C. metro area will continue to advertise with the bar logos.
Here is the full list of states with bars banned: New Jersey: 1 bar.
New Hampshire: 1.2 bars.
Massachusetts: 1,000 bars.
Michigan: 2 bars.
Pennsylvania: 1 bars.
Delaware: 1-1/2 bars Wisconsin: 1 1/2 bar.
West Virginia: 1 ½ bars.
Alabama: 1½ bars.
Louisiana: 1 2 bars New York: 1 3 bars Maryland: 1 4 bars North Carolina: 1 5 bars Florida: 1 6 bars Texas: 1 7 bars Washington: 1 8 bars Colorado: 1 9 bars New Jersey will not ban bars or logos, so you should be able to find your bar in the rest of the country.
The bar logos in the following states will not be allowed: Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.
In addition, the following bars will not have bar logos: California, Connecticut and the District of Columbia.
And as of April 1, the National Basketball Association, Major League Baseball, National Hockey League, and National Basketball Players Association will be barred from using their logos in any manner, not just in bars.
It also seems likely that the NFL and NHL players union will be able’t use their logos either.
In the meantime, bars in all states are expected to continue using their iconic logos.

The National Association for Bar and Restaurants, a trade group representing bar owners, issued a statement on Wednesday saying that they will continue with their tradition of banning bars and logos.
The statement reads, “We do not agree with the removal of the logos of the most iconic American sporting teams, and we are committed to preserving their legacy for future generations.”
A spokesperson for the National Football League said on Twitter that the team has no comment on the ban.
The NHLPA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
