A large rectangular mahogany bar anchors the center of the room, thick wood blinds cover the windows, and red lightbulbs give off a honky-tonk orange glow at this pub with pool-hall cool -- but no pool tables. There are games, though, from backgammon to Battleship, as well as live rock and roll on Saturday nights, ladies nights Tuesdays and Fridays, and other such festivities. The Bar is undeniably a fun place, but it takes its brews seriously. Among the 22 types of bottled beers are Pilsner Urquell, Anchor Steam, and rarer finds such as OranjeBoom from Holland ("hints of vanilla and bitterness") and Corsendonk (an ale brewed by Monks in Belgium with "malty hints of port, raisins, and black chocolate" followed by "hints of fruit, smoke, and yeast"). Eleven brews on tap include Guinness, Fosters, and the more obscure wheat beer, Tucher Hefe-Weizen. Pints run from $3.50 to $4.50; pitchers $12.50 to $16; bottles $3.25-$6.50. The Bar's bar food isn't to be taken lightly either; the hand-formed, charbroiled half- or full-pound burgers are better than most, as is the grilled London broil on garlic bread with melted Provolone. Key lime pie and chocolate cake are available for dessert, but 11 single malt scotches and 21 cordials are more appealing postdinner options.
