As often as I end up at B Bar & Grill, it tends to slip my mind when seeking a chill drink in a great atmosphere. Fortunately, I was reminded of how perfect it is for exactly that when I stopped by to meet up with a few friends last weekend. One of those friends happened to be a legendary singer (with “every breath he takes”), which I only bring up to show that – despite how unassuming and, well, old, it is – this place still has some relevancy.
B Bar & Grill is a good restaurant/bar for boozy brunch, celebrity sightings, big groups, lunch, casual dates, outdoor seating, people watching, entertaining out of town friends, girls’ nights out, taking home a one night stand, and guys’ nights out.
Good For Brunch/Boozy Brunch/Group Brunch: The garden bar is great for big groups, particularly in good weather. The menu and cocktail list are pretty standard and the crowd is hit or miss but the atmosphere’s awesome and stumbling out the door at 3 p.m. is not necessarily frowned upon by fellow patrons.
Good For Celebrity Sightings: At 20 years old, it’s clearly not attracting as many a-listers as in its heyday. However, (and I actually just thought about this), I’ve randomly ended up here with an unusually high amount of celebrity (and “celebrity”) friends throughout the years. I’ve also spotted a few on other occasions so – though not guaranteed – there’s still plenty of opportunity to gawk as a few boldfaces get… shit faced (sorry, it was RIGHT THERE).
