On the weekends, Barley House might be the hotspot of Warehouse District nightlife, but it’s just as popular in the middle of the day. The combination of the location and easy-going vibe make it an especially convenient spot for downtown workers looking to take a break from the office. Daily soup and sandwich combos elevate quick bar bites into wholesome fare, while the full menu dives deep into burgers, one coming topped with corned beef and a fried egg. For others, it’s the New Orleans-inspired shrimp bowls that beckon. Barley House has something for everyone, which renders it ideal for gathering up a group of friends and co-workers for a lunch outing, especially on warmer days when the patio’s snug, cabana-like seating is ripe for lounging.
