Mission’s The Bar to open in mid-November

The partners behind the four-year-old Bar West in Shawnee have scheduled a mid-November opening for their new Mission location.

The former Mission Tire and Service Center at 6101 Johnson Drive is being turned into The Bar. The Bar will feature the same menu as Bar West, including wraps, entree salads, soups, specialty burgers, and sandwiches, as well as daily specials from seafood to pot roast.

The Bar will seat 96 people inside and 40 on a patio facing Johnson Drive. It will keep two of the service center’s garage doors to open when the weather is nice. It will have about 20 employees.

“It’s really a unique area — all the growth there, young people moving in, a lot of walkers,” said Barry Wiser, operating partner for the restaurant group.
