The name reflects the theme of the bar: dogs. Barkley is the dog butler in the sitcom Modern Family, andis also a wink/nod to NBA Hall of Famer (and friend of Greg's) Charles Barkley. Charles is aware of the bar, and thinks it's "cool", but he is not in any way affiliated with it. Our plans include development of a dog-friendly are OUTSIDE the bar (dogs can't be allowed inside), and we're working with the city to make this happen very soon. We want to set up a system where you can regularly bring your dog, enjoy the bar, have dogs be "members" at Barkley's, and to have our walls adorned with 4x6 framed pictures of the dogs of our customers and friends. Please bring one of yours, and we'll hang it right away. Our menu is new, and we of course have a Friday night fish fry that rates with the best in town. We're always open to suggestions, so please let us know your thoughts.
