The Tavern Gremlins were a large group of gremlins wreaking havoc in Dorry's Tavern and several of the many gremlins that invaded Kingston Falls. They included the likes of the Bogart Gremlin, the Flasher Gremlin, the Fan Gremlin, the Deagle Gremlin, as well as their leader Stripe.
They all smoke, drink, play poker and trash the place with their rowdy behavior and they keep Kate Beringer hostage, forcing her to help and serve them drinks. Eventually, she discovers that the gremlins are sensitive to light when trying to light a cigarette for one of them, whereupon she flees by taking pictures of several of them with a camera as she makes her escape, blinding them by the flash. After she has run off with Billy Peltzer, the gremlins leave the wrecked tavern and head off to the movie theater.
