Harry Tselios (b. September 25, 1929, Nafpaktos, Greece; d. June 16, 2015, Ann Arbor) was a long time bartender at The Flame.

At the center of the Flame, however, was not its owner, but its charismatic bartender, Harry Tselios. In our interview with him, Jim Toy contrasted Harvey with Harry: “His bartender, Harry, was on the other end congenial. And people loved to chat with Harry. Harry was from Greece… Always polite. Always smiling. Always glad to talk, to chat rather. Absolutely.”
