In a recent issue of Seattle Magazine dedicated to The Best Noodles in Seattle, our Oxtail Pho makes an appearance. From the article:
“At Ba Bar, it’s all about the beef broth, heady with star anise, basil, cilantro, and slivered onions, but deep and layered too. The braised oxtail meet is unctuous, the rice noodles slippery but just a touch firm.”

Another interview from the folks at AllRecipes.com, this time it’s all about the phở. Watch the video.
Chef Banh explains the finer points of Vietnamese Vermicelli in this video from allrecipes.com
We’re nearing our one year anniversary and we decided to begin celebrating by expanding the bar seating with the addition of three new tables and 18 new seats. This means a lot more space for happy hour and cocktails.
In addition, bar manager Fairness Peck, alongside Chef Banh, have spent the last few months working with Alcohology Consultants to expand and refine the cocktail menu. The Alcohology team is: Andrew Friedman of Liberty Bar, Jay Kuehner of Sambar, and Casey Robison of Barrio, and they helped the Ba Bar crew better match cocktails to the menu and come up with some new creations as well.
“It was great working with the Alcohology guys,” says Peck. Our team knew what flavor profiles we wanted, and Andrew’s team was able to take our vision and with a little tweak here or there, nail what we were shooting for, exactly.”
The new menu kicks off officially on Saturday, June 30th. The newly expanded bar is open now. So get down here and try some of our new drinks. Check out the complete menu over here.

Thanks to Seattle Magazine and its readers! We got voted among a select few for Best Restaurant Happy Hour and we also nabbed the Reader’s Choice for Best Vietnamese Food award. Thanks people. We appreciate all the support we have received since we opened last year. We certainly couldn’t do it without you.
Get down to Ba Bar soon! Chef Eric Banh is behind the wheel. Happy hour is daily from 3PM to 7PM.
Kung Fu Karaoke kicked off last week and aside from tweaking the sound system a bit, we are excited for how it all turned out. Lots of good singers out there! It’s happening again this Tuesday so get down here. We have drink specials too, so tell the bartender you want one of our giant 55oz fish bowl Mai Tai Ponys. Suitable for sharing. And sharing is caring.
