Barry’s Bar & Grill, a Historic Haymarket District staple, has experienced a face-lift since Kevin Fitzpatrick and Kevin Duffy purchased the bar in the summer of 2012.  The changes included a renovated exterior and interior as well as an emphasized focus on their private party offerings.

The downtown property on 235 N. 9th Street has four unique venues, which all offer something special for a group looking to throw a party.

1.  Barry’s Bar & Grill:
This is the main restaurant area that is just like the Original Barry’s with a new flare.  The Bar & Grill area includes 20 high definition televisions, which enhance the environment for any sporting event.

“This is the heart and soul of our company and fulfills the Nebraska Tradition,” stated April Rost, Barry’s Marketing & Events Manager. 

The venue will also be updating to a new menu which was developed by their new Head Chef and will consist of house made, upscale bar food.  The new menu will be released for the first time this week on Friday, February 7th. 

2.  Barry’s Rooftop:
Barry’s Rooftop comes equipped with a full service bar and the perfect view of Memorial Stadium.  In the summer time, Barry’s provides bands and DJs, making this open-air roof space at the entrance of the Historic Haymarket District a wonderful place to relax after work.

3.  10below Outback:
The largest venue that Barry’s has to offer comes with VIP booths and leaves a lasting impression.  The Outback transforms from the Vegas Nightlife feel on weekends to elegant private parties on any given day. 

4.  10below Ice Bar:
This intimate style venue is highlighted by a one of a kind, ice-topped bar. Here you will find modern chic, laced with a concept unique to Lincoln.

All four of these venues specialize in being able to handle any event.  Some of Barry’s past events include wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, high school reunions, political events, birthdays, retirement parties, bachelorette parties, theater productions, live concerts, and many other types of get-togethers.

Barry’s understands the need for a variety of options, which is why they are always trying to find ways to continue to enhance its unique atmosphere.

“We plan on upgrading the whole venue this year! We have a lot ahead of us and constantly keep growing our business to cater to our client’s needs,” said Rost. 

Barry’s Bar & Grill is open Sunday-Wednesday: 11:00 AM to11:00 PM or later.  Thursday-Saturday: 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM.  10below’s hours are Friday-Saturday 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM.  For more information on Barry’s Bar & Grill or 10below visit or visit their Facebook page
