First and foremost, the logo should include the words "Cleo Tavern". No "the". The bar is located in a very small town in NW Oklahoma with an agriculture and oil-based local economy. Bikers, cowboys, oilfield hands, and farmers make up our clientele, but we also appeal to a younger college-aged crowd. Bands play country and rock music on weekends. We're a smoker-friendly domestic beer bar; we don't serve hard liquor or mixed drinks, so shot glass and cocktail imagery does not apply to our design needs.

I included an image of the Dundee brand beer logo as inspiration for the design. Not looking to rip off their design, but I was struck by it, and I'd prefer something similar in tone. The black and gold colors could be associated with oil and beer, and wheat is grown locally as well. I'm not 100% committed to that color scheme, but I don't want something too colorful and flashy.
If a bit more copy text could help the design come together, you may incorporate "Cleo Springs, Oklahoma" into it.
Order of preference for logo types: word mark, emblem, pictoral mark
