Chef Ivan and Brother James (Bailey) have announced they are closing the Bar Mar restaurant at 623 Mt. Pleasant Rd. and Manor Rd. Previously, the distinguished former bank building on the corner had a long history as the French restaurant Celestin. It was purchased by the Bailey brothers in 2009. In an announcement this week they say the brand Bar Mar band will continue “via pop ups and special events though for the while Bar Mar will not have a fixed location.” It was only in April that the restaurant changed its name from Celestin to Bar Mar and theme from French to Peruvian/Spanish.
