CBar, my favorite neighborhood bar.
I am going to come right out and say this: I love CBar. I really do. I live just down the street so it would be an understatement to say that my friends and neighbors and I spend an inordinant amount of time there.
I love the bartenders, I love the drinks, I love the cooks, I love their burgers. Love it. I do have to say that their drinks and drinking atmosphere outweigh the food to some degree, but no matter! CBar is still a great hangout!
They have a great cocktail menu, literally one of the only in town where I would be happy to order pretty much anything. My favorite is the Whiskey Snap: Makers Mark, ginger ale and a healthy heap of fresh shredded ginger root. Served on the rocks:
I order their burger pretty much any time I dine there. They have other tempting things on their menu such as Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Chimichurri Hanger Steak, but those never seem to tempt me as much as their good ‘ol burger.
The burger comes with the fresh staples: tomato, onion, butter lettuce, your choice of cheese and house-made aioli. You also get your choice of soup/salad/fries so you can go as heavy or as light as you want.
CBar also offers brunch from 10-3 on the weekends, and allows minors until 10PM, so feel free to bring the kiddos, or stumble in on the weekends for a giant mimosa or spicy Bloody Mary.
