Statut : utilisé

In most countries a bar is a purpose-built commercial establishment that sells alcoholic drinks to be consumed on the premises. They are characterised by a noisy and vibrant atmosphere, similar to a party. They usually do not sell food to be eaten as a meal. The music is usually loud and you often have to stand. Sometimes it has a dancefloor, but it's not the main attraction.

Whereas pubs tend to have a similar appearance to traditional houses, bars usually have a more commercial appearance.

In Mediterranean countries, the word "bar" has a different meaning (although this doesn't necessarily mean the tag should be applied differently). Here a bar is integral part of the lifestyle. You go there in the morning to have breakfast, at lunch they serve simple meals, all day long (if not closed after lunch) people use them to get a quick coffee and in the evening it's a meeting place to get an aperitif before dinner. Some are open in the evening and night though mostly they close in the evening, some also sell tobacco, sweets and stamps. Unlike a pub this kind of bar is open for breakfast and coffee plays a way bigger role than beer.

If the bar is not the principal activity (for example a hotel or restaurant that also has a bar) then that could be tagged with the principal activity and also tagged with bar=yes

Tags to use in combination

Similar tags

  • amenity=pub - Bars should not be confused with an amenity=pub. Pub has specific use as a tag in OpenStreetMap. A pub (short for public house) is an establishment that sells drink that can be drunk on the premises, but unlike a bar (case a), the atmosphere is relaxed, you can sit down, food is usually available, and you can have quiet conversation. Pubs tend to have a similar look and feel to traditional houses.
  • amenity=nightclub - More emphasis on dancing. More likely to require an entry fee.
  • amenity=biergarten - like pubs, but outdoors.
  • amenity=cafe - Sometimes bars double as cafes (more tea/coffees drinks, less alcohol) during the day. Decide the primary purpose of the place.
  • amenity=restaurant - Sometimes bars double as restaurant, or have an area set aside as a restaurant. Decide the primary purpose of the place.
