Gear up, Pike Place: JarrBar, the latest by Bryan Jarr (owner of the former Madison Park Conservatory), is set to open within weeks.  Most of the details for the 21+, 470-square-foot space at 1432 Western Avenue (near the Hillclimb) are the same as when we last spoke: The menu is based on favorites from a trip to Spain and Portugal that Jarr took last year, focused especially on preserved seafood and Spanish meats and cheeses. The bar will have wines from Spain, Portugal, and elsewhere; Spanish Estrella Damm beer on draft, another rotating tap, and more brews in bottles; cocktails with infusions; sangria; and beyond.

Another highlight in the tiny space will be a projector and a big screen which won't be down all the time, but will be for major sports matches.

"You could come multiple nights and not even know [the screen] is there," Jarr says. "We want to make it more event-focused," rather than just having the TV on all the time.

JarrBar will be open Tuesday through Sunday and regular hours are still being nailed down, but they'll be roughly from 4 p.m. until late—possibly 2 a.m. Hours will naturally shift when different sporting events are featured.

Depending on when the liquor license is finalized, Jarr hopes to introduce JarrBar by the end of the month.
