The neighborhood tavern and the cocktail lounge exhibit a relationship between the use of leisure and its meaning to the individual. The lounge caters to a transient clientele which does not form a cohesive group. But the tavern, a product of neighborhood and catering to indiduals with similar backgrounds, becomes the center of a voluntary association enforcing group norms and organizing group action.
