A Welcoming Atmosphere to Enjoy Great Company and Great Flavors Too

The Craft Bar offers up a unique, yet entirely cozy space to enjoy a drink and lunch or dinner when cravings come calling. This inviting locale boasts an unassuming façade, but inside, a world of rustic-chic décor standards awaits. Guests who step inside to enjoy The Craft Bar Experience will find a spacious main dining room waiting to greet them. Covered in chalkboards listing daily beverage and meal specials, it’s easy to feel that you’ve stepped into a place that’s simultaneously thrilling, yet altogether somehow familiar! Between the brick walls, sleek modern lighting fixtures, and natural wood tables, guests will find it simple to settle into flavor and style at The Craft Bar. If you take a seat in the middle of the dining room at one of the many tables or elevated stool seating areas, you’ll enjoy surroundings topped off with large black and white photographs. Those that choose to dine towards the front of the gastropub will enjoy floor-to-ceiling windows that swoop overhead and allow natural light to flow in. This creates an even more welcoming space to enjoy a delicious meal and paired beverage in great company when you’re in the area. To make the experience even more enjoyable, The Craft Bar is known for its friendly service and if you’re not sure where to start when it comes to pairing a brewed beverage to your selected menu options, the staff here are quick to offer up helpful insight and advice!

What to Expect During Your Time at The Craft Bar

While craft beer, handcrafted cocktails, and chef-inspired menu options are all priorities at The Craft Bar, many guests are thrilled to find that this gastropub puts a firm focus on locally and regionally sourced fare as well. Because of this, it’s not uncommon to see garnishments for handcrafted cocktails change up with the season! This makes for an exciting flavor profile to be enjoyed as well as eye-catching details that are fun to notice with every visit.  Here, every menu item comes with a unique artisanal twist, and local grass-fed beef and fresh from the Gulf seafood is a must. While homemade sauces are served up regularly much to the delight of dining guests, visitors can enjoy savoring these flavors while sitting at a table or bar produced using reclaimed cypress that’s well over 100 years old!
