THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bar Restaurant Review

: The name in neon is beautifully direct. Three letters, but it says a lot about this hip, honest, inviting spot that serves booze, as the name implies, and the city’s best pizza outside Wooster Square. A soaring space with lots of exposed brick and fantastic arched windows that look onto the busy Crown Street, Bar successfully combines a brewpub, restaurant and nightclub under one roof. While young adults come here to play pool, dance and drink, we’re drawn by the terrific, free-form pizzas cooked in wood-burning ovens. Bar’s menu is brief: thin-crust pizza and a solitary salad. That salad, though, speaks loudly. Fresh mesclun, sliced pears, crumbled blue cheese and caramelized pecans in a light vinaigrette. The pizza, offered in three sizes, is a nicely blistered beauty. The basic red pie with mozzarella is the best. A list of 20 different toppings runs from the predictable (pepperoni and sausage) to the unusual (mashed potatoes). Wash you pies down with any of the five house-brewed beers, such as BAR Blonde or AmBAR Ale. Available by pint or pitcher. Bar is a young, friendly and entertaining place to grab top-notch pizza and beer.
