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 following exception apply to minors: (1) 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. Minors may only make up less than 10% of customers present.

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, what should I do?

First, please visit our Party FAC page to help clear up any initial questions you may have time. Under the 'Bookings' tab you will find pricing for our venues, catering and kegs, as well as an Event Inquiry Form. Please fill this out for ALL inquiries. It's much easier for us to file through all the inquiries when we already have your contact info and an idea about your event. Molly is our event coordinator and will get back to you by email as soon as possible. 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.
