I was extremely mean to the staff of a bar. Should I try to apologize?

I went to a bar I had never been to before. I tried to get served but they said they closed early and staff were the only people there. I tried to bargain with them for a minute but got up to leave after the third or fourth time they told me they were closed. I said something about turning down money. As I was walking out I heard some laughter. That isn't any excuse, and I hate myself for it, but I turned around and flipped them off. I don't remember if I also cursed at them. Then I shoved the doors open forcefully and as I walked down the street, someone came out and told me to never come back. I said something like "I don't care."
Should I try to apologize? On the phone or in person? Should I just lay in the bed I made?
This was in a large town I live near but do not visit often. I did not come in physical contact with anyone. I am of legal drinking age but look like I'm too young.
On a selfish note, I'm concerned about running into one of the staff and getting beat up. I'm concerned about my reputation. I'm concerned about legal ramifications.
And yes, I am seeking help for my issues.
