ON BarON Bar

Bar / Lounge / Bottle Service | Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo / Paso Robles

At ON Bar, we take immense pleasure in serving the many customers of Paso Robles who come to us for delicious, daring flavors and a wonderful selection of wines. ON Bar is located in downtown Paso Robles at 1144 Pine Street.
We offer dinner Sunday, Tuesday & Wednesday from 3-9PM and Thursday to Saturday from 3-10PM with a few exceptions for holidays.

We are CLOSED on Mondays.
We have Happy Hours, Sunday and Tuesday through Friday, 3-6PM

The idea for ON Bar was born out of a love for food, first and foremost, and a desire to fill in a culinary gap in the parkside area in Paso Robles. The owners have come together to create a menu that not only satisfies quick lunches for locals, but also has fine dining for your date night. It is our hope that ON Bar will be both the comfortable night out for locals, as well as a great stop on your wine tasting adventure for tourists.

Discover California Central Coast

The California Central Coast is home to beautiful beaches, and it is also a major source of fresh seafood for local restaurants. Enjoy a locally caught Cajun-style Albacore tuna steak, panko-crusted and topped with wasabi coleslaw and sliced avocado. Elsewhere, you may prefer the halibut, which is in season year-round in the area and guaranteed to be fresh. Order it lightly cooked in lemon and butter, sauteed in wine, butter, garlic, and capers and served over pasta or with potatoes. The coast has more than seafood, as residents and visitors can relish a California beet salad made with sliced beets over butter lettuce and liberally sprinkled goat cheese dressed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
