“Bar” and “Draper” aren’t two words you’ll usually hear in the same sentence. But Josh Rosenthal, founder of La Barba Coffee, has made it a bit more common now.

Josh and his partners have opened up Seabird Bar & Vinyl Lounge–a different take on your usual bar. You won’t see any TV’s on the wall playing football, and Affliction shirts and bedazzled mens’ jeans will probably be kept to a minimum as well (who am I kidding; this is Draper so bring on the leased BMW’s and decorated jeans!). This bar features handmade furniture from local carpenter Salted Grain. Vinyl records selected from a huge collection displayed on the wall are played through beautiful speaker boxes, and the dark walls and light wood all provide nice contrasts to create an open and welcoming area to hang out, enjoy some craft cocktails, craft beer, and small plates.

Seabird Bar is located above the La Barba coffee shop in Draper, and is open from 5pm-12am seven days a week.

The second Seabird Bar is slated to open at The Gateway later this year.
