My Brother's Bar

Yes, My Brother’s Bar has a fascinating history: The building has held a bar since the 1870s; Neal Cassady hung out here when it was Paul’s Place; and as My Brother’s Bar, it survived with no TVs while playing classical music and serving as a neighborhood joint for the whole city. But the most interesting chapter is the current one: After four decades, a longtime employee and her family bought the place from the Karagas family, vowing to keep My Brother’s Bar going. It still serves up a legendary burger, and nothing beats bellying up to the bar and settling in with a cold beer and your burger of choice. That burger hits the table wrapped in butcher paper, sans plate, and is accompanied by a condiment caddy (back after a pandemic hiatus) bearing ketchup, mustard, salt, pepper, sliced onion, dill pickles, relish and peppers.
