Another Round At the Spaceport Bar - George H. Scithers and Darrell Schweitzer

The second of these Spaceport Bar anthologies, not quite as good as the first at 3.25, but close. Does the job with the selection, that aren't all lighthearted and funny to provide changes of pace. Science fiction and fantasy here, some of these bars certainly don't exist in universes with spaceports.
