18. MacLaren's Pub, in How I Met Your Mother (2005-present)

McLaren's is a typical Irish pub with familiar patrons who frequent the booth near the bar and order fried appetizers (from 11 different options, no less) over shots and pints. But the similar Irish bar on our block isn't frequented by Neil Patrick Harris, whose character, Barney, seems like he would be an infallable wingman. And we don't have a bartender as cool Carl (Joe Nieves).

Plus, according to Lily (Alyson Hannigan), the burgers are pretty good: "It's like Christmas in my mouth—meat Christmas." Which, of course, is what people have always really wanted from Santa Claus.
