Doors have opened at the Richmond, Virginia-based GwarBar, a restaurant and bar located at 217 West Clay Street in the Jackson Ward arts district.
The GwarBar makes real the longtime dream of late Gwar frontman Dave Brockie, who always wanted to open an eatery for fans of the band.
The project was further spurred by Jonathan Staples of James River Distillery.
Along with restaurant partner Travis Croxton of Rappahannock, GwarBar’s stated mission is to bring “intergalactic junk food” to the citizens of Richmond and visiting Gwar fans from around the universe.
The restaurant’s ambience allegedly balances beauty and brutality in the band’s trademark style, brought to life with the design and construction prowess of Barry Griffin at Griffin Customs.
The menu features signature drinks served in a Gwar Tiki mug, as well as Scumdogs (which are house-made sausages) and McDuckets (a combination duck, chicken, cheese and truffle nugget).
