Riverfront Times' Description
Handlebar is quickly becoming one of the city's hippest of scenes. How hip, you ask? Well, we named it 2012's "Most Hipster Bar," for starters. On any given night you'll see bicycles galore parked outside, '80s hits blasting through the speakers and irony in every corner. But Handlebar, despite the negative connotations of hipsterdom, is the opposite of exclusive: All are welcome here, and that draws in bright-eyed college kids meandering thirtysomethings alike. The menu is full of traditional Russian fare, and the bar offers plenty of craft brew along with enticing drink specials. The dance floor is as eclectic as the crowded dance floor, and the music thumps rock and soul DJs and all 50 shades of EDM. The best part of Handlebar might be the back patio where smokers find relief around a fire pit and conversations escape the pounding bass.
Tips from foursquare
Not a cyclist? That's OK. There's plenty to love here, including the warming Hot Taty and the flaming Road Rash. Specials and a focus on local beer add a neighborhood-bar vibe we like. (Gabe Hartwig)
