Harissa is not likely to be a very interesting choice when you are looking simply for a bar. But it does have a small bar and some pleasant wine choices to go with your kabobs and mezzeh.
Historical notes: This was the first location of the Santa Fe Cafe, established here in 1981. Before that it was Bimbo's, a biker bar. It was Earl's Tavern in the 60s and 70s, the Hop In Tavern in the mid 70s, and in the 40s Cliff's Tavern and Frank's Tavern.
