In the olden (pre-computer) days, "elevator bar"
referred to an establishment where a bartender
dispensed drinks to walk-up customers from a
booth the size of an elevator car. Maybe
someone on the Mac UI development team
was from New Orleans...

I think "elevator bar" is a Mac term.

(Actually, it kind of sounds like a place where you can get a martini on
your way to the 25th floor.)
