Archie Bunker's Place is a sitcom that aired on CBS.

This was a continuation of previous series All in the Family. Although the Bunker home, the primary setting for the original series, was featured, the new series was primarily set at the titular Archie Bunker's Place, the neighborhood tavern in Astoria, Queens which Archie Bunker bought in the eighth-season premiere of All in the Family. During the premiere of Archie Bunker's Place, Bunker takes on a politically-liberal Jewish partner, Murray Klein, when original co-owner Harry Snowden decides to sell his share of the business. Early in the first season, to increase business, Archie and Murray add a restaurant onto the bar; the new additions include a separate seating area for the restaurant and a well-equipped kitchen with a service window. Regular patrons at Archie's bar include Barney Hefner, Hank Pivnik, and Edgar Van Ranseleer.

Archie Bunker's Place was the sounding board for Archie's views, support from his friends, and Murray's counterpoints. Later in the series, after Murray remarries and leaves for San Francisco, Archie finds a new business partner, Gary Rabinowitz, whose views (like those of Murray) were liberal, in contrast to Archie's political conservatism.
