The Bar

UP and running


Hello all patrons. Yesterday Gov. Wolf put into effect an extension to the business safety order. Everyone knows that the wearing and not wearing of masks has become a issue to some. With these business safety orders we have to comply with the standards or else we could be shut down again and hit with a fine for non compliance. The 4 bartenders at our establishment are doing everything we can to keep our doors open and business going including wearing masks while we work to keep ourselves and other safe. Therefore with that said. Patrons are required to wear a mask when entering our business. Our jobs are our livelihood. Please be respectful of that and be courteous. We’re all trying to get through this together. Thank you.

[06/05/20]   Attention all patrons! The bar will be opening today at 2 PM! There’s still a few more things we need to accomplish before opening today to make sure things will run as smooth as possible. So see you all around 2 PM! - Chyers

[05/23/20]   Attention all Bar-Barians! The bar’s doors will finally be opening again on June 5th at 2:00 PM! With the green phase active we are required to hold our customer number to 50% of our capacity. The capacity we believe is 72 so that’s 36 customers allotted in the bar at any point and time. We will be removing some barstools to help stay in compliance and our patio will be open as well. We have canceled all scheduled music as of now but we will figure that out and announce what’s up with that as soon as we can. We will be doing our best to maintain a safe and sanitary environment for all. Staff will be required to wear face masks. Please, and we beg you, PLEASE DO NOT come to the bar if you are feeling ill in any way. Trust us. Whiskey doesn’t fix everything. Almost everything though! Obviously if we are at capacity and you try to come by you will be denied entry until a customer leaves. Apologies if that does happen, but that’s how we have to work for now. We are all so excited to see everyone again and get back to pouring drinks for all to enjoy. See you all soon!

-Chyers, Alex, Jackie, Christian.

[03/17/20]   We would like to take a minute to address what is going on here at the bar. After Governor Tom Wolf asked all non-essential businesses to shut down for two weeks we’ve decided its in everyone’s best interest to follow what was asked and do our part to prevent any virus related issues in our establishment. Unfortunately with that said our bar will be closing tonight at 12 Midnight. Last call at 11:15 PM.

We will continue to be open for TAKE OUT BEER ONLY from 1-5 PM daily until advised to operate as usual.

Everyone stay as healthy as can be and take care of yourselves and your loved ones. We will get through all of this. 🍻

Our Story

Just a simple no frills local small town bar with good prices and a friendly atmosphere. When you walk in the door you may see a smoke filled bar with a bunch of locals taking up half the bar stools, but don't worry, you'll fit in just fine. We have regular music here at the bar for everyones evening entertainment and a small stage for our artists to preform on. During the summer we have an awning and a nice patio area for people to relax outside and enjoy some beverages. Friendly Dogs are allowed on the patio in the summertime as well! So next time you're cruising through little ole Boalsburg, PA stop by the bar for a cold one!
