#1 for Veg-options and Nightlife - Edit

Omni GF and I started our trip to Richmond at GWARbar, and after other night spots let us down, we had to return. The buffalo cauliflower was amazing, as were the fries, and beer selection. The vegan sauces were spot-on! I was worried the music would overpower our visit, but it was at a good level, easy for conversation.

Pros: Good beer, Good food, Good music

These guys deserve 5 stars - Edit

I wish Happy Cow would let me give GWARbar five stars. This place is awesome! Great food, interesting atmosphere. Prices are reasonable. Off street parking. We had the Hail Seitan and the Vegan Wopper and both were delicious. Vegan ranch was delicious! What's not to love?

Metal Vegan awesome - Edit

The flattus kicked ass! It's always wonderful to find vegan food. The cauliflower wings were greasy yummy bar food. Really hit the spot. The hail Satan burger is really a sloppy Joe. It was okay, kinda meh. Totally awesome bar experience would recommend to my friends.

Vegan meal - Edit

I ordered the Heil Seitan! The sandwich was delicious I'd get it again! The only thing I didn't like was the BBQ beans, they felt like they weren't fully cooked and lacked flavor! But other then that I'll be back to have another sandwich!

This deserves 5 starts. - Edit

The "Hail Seitan" was delicious and my mother loved the non-vegan burger she got. They were really friendly and I loved that vegan items were offered and clearly marked.

Pros: Vegan options, good quality, good price.

Unique atomsphere with great vegan options - Edit

GWARBar is a small, theme oriented bar that is a huge draw for local Hipsters. The décor is very funky and includes lots of fake blood splatters throughout.

We started with the Vegan Wangs, which are Seitan-based. They were very tasty with a realistic consistency. The Buffalo sauce were nicely spicy.

I had the Vegan Wopper next. It's a Seitan-based Italian sausage sandwich that is very authentic tasting to the point that I looked for tell-tale grease on the bread. It definitely was not greasy! The sausage had a very nice kick. I had the House cut fries as a side and they were cooked until golden brown and very crispy. The fries were to die for.

GWARBar is very small, so you might want to get there before the rush. Unfortunately, the service is really slow. We waited well over 20 minutes just for a table to be cleared. That said, the staff is friendly.

If you can forgive the slow service, GWARBar is definitely worth a visit.

Pros: Tasty vegan options, Unique atomsphere, Reasonable prices

Cons: Very small, Glacial service, Unique atomshere
