Handlebar & Grill, the latest concept from Mill Avenue restaurateur Julian Wright, officially opens its doors at 3 p.m. today.
Located on the west side of Mill, between Sixth and Seventh street, Handlebar is modeled after a German beer garden with a focus on being bike- and dog-friendly.
The bar will offer 24 beers on tap and 24 by the bottle. (See food & drink menus here.)
Handlebar will be open 3 p.m.-2 a.m. through Oct. 1, then expand its hours to 11 a.m.- 2 a.m.
Wright has reached a tentative agreement with Apache Junction’s Handlebar Pub & Grill for rights to the “Handlerbar” name. The A.J. craft beer bar will debut a new moniker soon.
