Red Chucks... White China
Welcome to BAR 145, Toledo’s First Gastropub
  • A Gastro-What?
  • GASTROPUB: It’s a British (AMERICAN!) term for a pub which specializes in high-quality food a step above the traditional grub pub. Gastropubs have an atmosphere which is relaxed and focused on offering a particular cuisine prepared as well as the best restaurants. Staying true to the format requires a menu that complements the assortment or beers and wines (and bourbon!) the gastropub offers.
  • What Makes Our Place Unique?
  • Bar 145 is Toledo's first gastro pub, specializing in "Burgers, Bands, and Bourbon." A gastro pub has an atmosphere that is relaxed and focused on offering a particular cuisine prepared as well as the best restaurants. Our tag line: "Red Chucks, White China" emphasizes our culture clash having all of our food served on white china while our employees are sporting red Chuck Taylor tennis shoes. Bar 145 provides a spacious patio with high rise tables, a 50-seat oval bar split by an industrial size garage door, and flat screen TVs strategically placed for viewing. Utilizing local farmers and purchasing fresh products daily allows Bar 145 to offer customers a vast amount of exclusive specials. With the option to “Stack Your Own,” customers are given an opportunity to create a burger or sandwich choosing from 10 Artisan Cheeses, 14 House-made Sauces, and Over 23 toppings ranging from Roasted Red Peppers to Peach Habanero Chutney to Roasted Duck & so much more!
  • Origin of Our Name?
  • The most popular question asked to our staff is how we came up with the name Bar 145, wondering if it is the address or if there is 145 different ways to stack your own burger/sandwich. The answer? It is actually the temperature of a perfectly cooked medium rare burger. The warm pink center and slightly crispy outside provide an amazing contrast that we can't resist, and you shouldn't mess with.
  • Type of Music/Entertainment: ?
  • Bar 145 offers live entertainment six nights a week ranging from acoustic, dueling pianos, and jazz to full bands. Our entertainment includes local bands such as Empire Drift, Nine Lives, and the Bridges as well as bands from Chicago, Cincinnati, Columbus, and Florida.
