Passengers of all Classes (but not the crew) could be served with drinks at other than meal times, but there were no bars in the sense that we know them. The 'bars' shown on deck plans were store places for drinks. There was one adjacent to each of the smoking rooms near the stern for all three Classes, and another in the large '3rd Class open space' under the forward well deck - scene of evening revelry as in James Cameron's party scene.

"The 'bars' shown on deck plans were store places for drinks."

To elaborate, the compartments referred to adjacent to public rooms would be 'dispense bars', that is, waiter service only. There would still be a barman on station during service.

Dispense bars are restocked on a daily basis from the ship's storerooms; these normally comprise a beer-room and a 'bond' for spirits and tobacco and should show up as such on the GA.
