The Bar @ Aldar Restaurant

The bar at Al Dar Restaurant is so popular that many people stop by just to go there.  They are drawn by the fine drinks served at the bar, but more than anything they are drawn to Walid the bartender. Through the years, Walid has become somewhat of a legend throughout the Philadelphia area, and he has many fans at the Al Dar Restaurant and beyond.  Walid is more than just a great mixologist, although he certainly is that.  But it is his attitude and his approach to the job that makes Walid so great at what he does. In fact, Walid is such an institution at the Al Dar Restaurant that many patrons think he owns the place.  They are shocked when they find out that Walid is not the owner – just a happy part of the Al Dar family.
