a.bar, a new sibling to a.kitchen at AKA Rittenhouse Square is a refined- yet unpretentious oyster, charcuterie and snacks bar focusing on superb wines, craft beers and cocktails. Designed by award-winning architect Edward Asfour of New York’s Asfour Guzy, who also designed a.kitchen, a.bar features natural materials, coffered ceilings and a 17-seat pewtered bronze bar in a refined design that complements the style of a.kitchen and AKA Rittenhouse Square.
a.bar is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week with priority seating and a separate entrance for AKA Rittenhouse Square residents. Snacks and small plates will be offered, as well as wines by the glass in 3 oz or 5 oz servings. There's a focus on white wines that express minerality as well as a vast selection of fino and manzanilla sherries, all designed to match with the seafood menu. a.bar can accommodate parties of individuals, couples, friends and small gatherings up to 36 people.
