Henry Beam's Blue Bar is a downtown Livermore Icon...kinda like Foster's Freeze and the Donut Wheel. It's located on First Street near S. Livermore Avenue across the movie theaters and next to the yellow ribbon pine tree. There's a homeless man living on the lawn next to the Blue Bar...at least he's been there these past few days.
I've only come here on a weekend evening and have a really good time! The dance floor is small though. It's good to have a night out with your friends. Good drinks, average price. No cover charge which is always good! I have to say the only complaint is the dance floor being far too small for the amount of people they admit in the bar!
I like the Blue Bar a lot. Its in a great location! Everyone who works there is really friendly and makes you feel at home. The music on friday nights is always good. Me and my girlfriends always have a good time and we always feel safe which is always nice.... And for the first comment left as a city employee, i think that you should have something better to do than leave negative comments about a place in the city you work in haven't you ever heard the saying " If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all" ?
I love going to the Blue Bar!! I always have a great time there. Everyone is always so friendly...Even the "BEAR" that sits out front. I have never had a bad time here. The DJ on friday nights is awesome! and the bartenders and friendly and fast. I love the BlueBar!
This bar is in a good location and could be a great place. BUT they have one big problem and he sits at the front door and looks like a BEAR. My wife and I whent there on 11-8-07 we parked in the back. We had one beer each at the bar then took a nice walk around the new downtown. When I returned about 10:00 pmto get my car we where greeted in the parking lot by the BEAR. he informed me that I could'nt there and that he would have it fuc###% car towed. To top it all off he called my wife a Fuc###% Bitc#. My wife and I got in the car and left. I am a city employee for the City of Livermore. and dont recomend this place to anyone as long as the BIG BEAR is Around.
Pros: nice location lot of friendly bars in walking distance from this one
Cons: no parking/rude staff/
