If there are any geeky bars in existence they should hang a sign like this No Droids Allowed notice at their entrance to greet patrons. Nothing like a display of intolerance towards robots to endear your establishment to customers.
It could also say “We don’t serve their kind here!”, which was another phrase spoken in the film.
