Where are you located?
Barry's is located right on the corner of 9th and Q street. We are nestled right between Lincoln's Haymarket district and downtown. We are less than 5 minute walk to Memorial Stadium, The University of Nebraska Lincoln and Pinnacle Bank Arena.
What is your policy on minors?
We are 21+ at all times. As a bar, we want to create an adult-focused atmosphere which extends through our music selection and customer culture. The two following exceptions apply to minors: (1) Under 5 years of ago and accompanied by an adult. (2) Private Parties if minors names are signed for in advance, at time of booking and approved by our Event Coordinator. Even during Private Parties this exception only extends until 9pm.
What are your hours of operation?
We are open 7 days a week. Daily hours change seasonally and are affected by local and national events. We tend to follow the schedule of the University which is why we are closed during most breaks and holidays. Most days you will find us open from 11am until 1-2am daily, with the exception of Monday as we open at 5pm.
I'm planning an event who should I talk to?
Allison is our event coordinator and private party planner. You can reach her at 402-525-2244 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Under the 'Bookings' tab you will find pricing for our venues, catering and kegs, as well as an Event Inquiry Form. Please have some details regarding your event ready to help get the process started. Pricing can be affected by concerts, holidays and Husker Football.
Who owns Barry's today?
Since 1959, Barry's has been under the ownership of three separate parties. In 2012, Kevin Fitzpatrick and Kevin Duffy bought the original Barry's which only consisted of what we call today "The Main Bar". They renovated by adding an expansive event space called 10 Below and the renowned Rooftop. Both own a handful of other bars around the midwest. In all their bars, they strive to maintain authenticity, honor and tradition of the original.
Husker Bar or Nebraska Bar?
We used to call ourselves, "Barry's The Husker Bar" until we ran into some issues with the University. Now we are officially called "Barry's The Nebraska Bar" but we still like to think of ourselves as the true Husker Sports Bar of Lincoln, Nebraska.
I'm looking for a job. How do I apply?
In this industry, personality is everything and skills are teachable. Come in to apply in person and ask for an application [or download it here and drop it off]. We find this is best so we can put a face to a name on paper. We're always hiring for servers, kitchen and security. Show us you're committed and you might move up to bartender!
