Cuold you tell me the meaning of "low bars"? And "set"? These are words of the song "Anythingh goes" (1934).

If driving fast cars you like,
If low bars you like,
If old hymns you like,
If bare limbs you like,
If Mae West you like
Or me undressed you like,
Why, nobody will oppose!
When every night,
The set that's smart
Is intruding in nudist parties in studios,
Anything Goes

Thanks

    Hi,
    "Set" in this context means "gruppo di persone".
    I'm pretty sure that "low bars" would mean something like "un bar di/della classe inferiore".

    But let's see what others say.
