I have never got the baseball/ trucker cap thing in pubs .  They detract from the character and ambiance.   Older images of outback pubs in books an T V shows  have a certain swagger

They can't all be slouch hats.

Well, they have brassieres too,  apparently... (5th picture upwards from this post) .   Roll Eyes

 Grin

 Thee lingerie I can get my head around -.   in some establishments they may lend ambiance . I can even imagine them being  trophies surrendered  after a lost game of pool. [ or lost and found in the car park]

But baseball caps are just plain ugly  and have no decorative value

Those are outback pubs, and so outback people, eg. truckies, will be there. Some of their crap may join the crap stuck all over the walls.

Try a Mad Cow Tavern franchise. They also have crap all over the walls and a dingy alcoholism-worshipping atmosphere, possibly due to the one in Townsville having actually been a Victorian-era pub (the Commercial Hotel), although it is now like a pub in the same way that a palliative care ward is like a retirement village. I cannot, for unknown reasons, find any terribly good pics of the interior, but:

It looks far dingier in the cold light of day (such as makes it in there) when you can see all the crap, the low level of care for the wood, hear the chitin crunch beneath your feet, and have to take 3 cash registers covered in congealed brown sludge back to the workshop, one of which may have had its cash drawer slammed shut on the power cable.
