The bar is a place where people go to relax, drink, and socialize. In the past, bars were typically owned by one person or a family. These days, there are many different types of bars.
Some bars are designed for families with children while some are designed for adults only. Some bars serve food while others do not. Some serve alcohol while others do not.
Many people choose to go to the bar because they can have a conversation with their friends without being interrupted by other noise in the room like television sets or phones ringing.
