World's Largest Biker Bar is the number one blue collar biker bar in the United States. Everyone is welcome, but it's well known that factory workers, construction workers and any kind of guy who busts his butt and saves his money all year is gonna be welcome at the Throttle. We get about 15,000 people a night. They go through a lot of beer. We get two tractor trailers full of beer delivered every night of the rally. The beer companies know by now that there are so many motorcycles clogging the roads, they can't send trucks during the day, so they come after 3:00 AM, when the bars have closed.

Just a destination people have to see ONCE. All the bars and food vendors are cash only. Pushing shots at every corner. Once is enough.

I believe it would be fine if you are going before the rally. The bar is mainly outdoors and hardly has any traffic other than rally week.
