I can't stand going out in PB most nights, but whenever I go to Bar West I have a great time. Why people wait in lines to go into PB Bar & Grill when Bar West is just around the corner with half the line and a completely upgraded setting is beyond me. I say, leave Garnet for the tourists and go party at Bar West! It's always a super fun and hot crowd on Thursdays, awesome music too. If your friends are getting a table ... get the one with a stripper pole in the back.
Bar West has literally saved me so much money in cab fare ... I used to trek downtown to Hard Rock or somewhere to party on Thursdays until I realized how fun it is to party at Bar West on Thursdays. I love, love DJ Mikey Beats and it's rad that he spins most Thursdays in PB. Finallllllllly I can stay at "home" and have a super fun night!
"Went there on a Thursday and a Sunday...got there by 10pm and it was already busy. The music was already rockin' and the staff was ridiculously good looking (Isaac was amazing)...the crowd was alright too. By 11:30pm, the place was out of control...real good times!!! Good dj's, great guava mojito's!...and they serve ciro's (which i love!) at the end of the night....
all in all, I would HIGHLY recommend it as a great alternative to going downtown...cheers!!"
It's a cool place with cool people. You can avoid cover charge if you call and get on the guest list or send a message on Facebook. At the end of the day, it's a night club not a bar. If you like the neighborhood dive then this isn't the place for you. if you are looking for a nightclub experience then you will enjoy your visit.
Let's face it, if you're looking for the typical PB dive bar than Bar West ISN'T for you. Bar West offers something different and that's why I love it. It's just as fun as going downtown without having to deal with the long lines, fancy dress code and outrageous cover charge.

BarWest was cool for about the first 6 months it opened after replacing the equally non-classy Margarita Rocks. Since then they haven't been able to get it right. They got downtown prices, rude staff, no cute girls, and a bunch of random weirdos that go there. I have no idea why anyone would pay cover for this place. All the cute girls are either downtown, or feel like having a casual night and frequenting a real ""PB"" bar.
PS. don't even think about having food here. I wonder what their monthly food revenue is.
