HandleBar

Once the odd new kid in the Grove, HandleBar has now established itself as a friendly neighborhood anchor. At first the bar seemed sort of doomed. Its bike-friendly-plus-we-have-pierogies mystique was slightly alarming, even more so because it occupies a space that has changed hands and names several times -- but its spunky appeal prevails. With 20 beers on tap, many of which are local, and plenty of specials daily, HandleBar is a nice place to fuel up on your bike commute home from work, to stop by for the latest ‘80s dance party or even simply to check out some bicycle artwork. The food menu features pizzas, plenty of vegetarian options and Russian-inspired entrees like blinchiki and pelmeni. In addition to famous dance parties, HandleBar also has room for local bands to perform.
