Since 1983, The Handlebar has always been known as the home for Pensacola’s Music Scene.
Now in its third rendition, The Handlebar continues to stand behind that message. Music is a unifier among people from numerous walks of life. Music helps us escape the moment and connect with both friends and strangers. The Handlebar has reopened its doors to make sure that Pensacola always has a place to experience underground & alternative music.
Our venue is a focused blend of the old and new. Our historic brick walls and steel beams are paired with a brand-new bar with substantial offerings, an upgraded sound and lighting system, an enhanced patio entranceway, and four revamped bathrooms to create a pleasing atmosphere where you can enjoy going to shows and hanging out to the fullest.
The Handlebar extends beyond its walls and into the community, connecting its music diehards with its bar regulars. We are the place for everyone, especially those who don’t (or don’t want to) fit the mold. The Handlebar gave us all memories years ago, and we want to continue giving our community lasting memories for years to come.
