Varga Bar feels like a retro diner, but the food and drink menus are unmistakably modern. The decor includes black and white tiled floor, all black woodwork, walls of various shades of purple, and several posters and ceiling murals of pinup girls. The term Varga Girls refers to artwork by Peruvian born Alberto Vargas, one of the most famous pinup artists of the 20th century. His art became famous in the 40's and is easily recognized Americana spanning several decades. Varga Bar showcases these artistic beauties, and also hosts an annual pinup calendar girl contest.

Varga Bar has a 12-stool black wooden bar, several tables, and some outdoor sidewalk seating. On temperate days, glass doors open up two sides of the bar to the sidewalks, creating an inviting atmosphere. There are 22 craft beers on tap, mostly bold regional craft brews. It is a great selection for craft beer hunters, and they serve any draft beer in sample size, which is great if you wish to explore their variety. They also have about 60 bottles and cans of national craft beer excellence. The bar is also stocked with top shelf liquors. The food menu is fabulously delicious and each dish is crafted with carefully selected ingredients. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Overall I was very impressed with my dining experience at Varga Bar.

Excellent beer selection! Over 20 taps, good bottle and can list, well broken down on the menu to find a beer you're looking for, and 2 hand pumps with great beer on them as well.

It's a smallish bar, but very nice. Service was very good, quick to get you a pint!

Also had a nice outdoor area and had heaters so even in the middle of winter you could sit outside and not freeze.
