true love or real love? I saw the name of a bar is "real love",but I think "true love"is better. How do you think about it?

'true love' is a usual term so, I go with "real love"... in which case anyway, it just a clever advertisement gimmick. here, we have a common tag line for a brand of beer: "real strong, for real men!" ('strong' pertains to the alcohol content of the beer). :)

To me "real love" sounds more modern, hip, youthful and less book-ish and elevated.

"Real love" generally pertains to the quality of the love (as opposed to, say, fake love, like physical attraction, loving someone for their money, etc). "True love" is half-idomatic, and used almost exclusively to indicate the measure of love between two people, in the sense of having found the right one. For instance, when you see a couple sitting on a bench, all lovey-dovey, you'd say: "It's true love!" Or, "I found my true love!"
