I spend a lot in bars. Ok that didn’t sound as good as it did in my head. While I don’t drink a lot, I spend a lot of times in bars. Ok that sounded much better. On any given Sunday, you can find me in a bar playing Uno, eating, catching up with friends, or enjoying one of Brad’s special mimosas. Bars are kinda my thing.
Now there’s a new challenger on the bar scene. Bar Ware is Downtown Memphis’ newest bar. Located at 276 S Front St near Old Dominick Distillery and Gus’ Fried Chicken. I’m very particular about my bars experience, Bar Ware checks a few of my bar must haves.
Bar Ware has a really cool lounge type feel. Not a pseudo club that poses as a lounge. It’s an actual lounge complete with plenty of seating, really dope artwork and nice decor. I really dig the color scheme. I’m a huge fan of blue tones and these Navy tones were legit mane.
The bartenders are also pretty cool. That’s a big plus. No one wants their drink made with attitude or from bartenders that act like you’re bothering them. Those places never get a return visit. I want a bar that’s like Cheers. I want everyone to be welcoming, friendly and most importantly to know my name. Also the drinks were really good. They even have a super secret machine that will turn the head of your beer frozen! What magic is this!
Bar Ware is definitely worth a visit. I can’t comment on their brunch situation just yet. They were still working on that menu. The standard menu features beef Wellington skewers and deviled eggs. As an avid bruncher, that will make or break Bar Ware for me. Let’s hope they have some great prices so that I can enjoy that nice patio they have outside!
